“Guitaristes vol 1”
In group of authors — ed. Outre Mesure 2003

Pierrejean Gaucher, Louis Winsberg, Pierre Bensusan, Olivier Louvel, Manu Galvin, Jean-Christophe Hoarau, Christophe Godin, Yannick Robert et Serge Lazarevitch

"Guitaristes Volume1" was written by guitarists above all "artists" who have over time developed and matured their own musical language. This first volume covers many technical and musical styles. The originality of this book is above all the plurality of authors. If they have mostly an experience of teaching, how they explain is intimately linked to the music they play. Therefore, a subject which was thought to have been around, sometimes appears in a different light, simply because the author focuses on some details in a different way, always in relation to his musical approach, his artistic practice.
