French-Algerian fingerstyle guitarist Pierre Bensusan is a unique talent. His sound and style confounds classification, being both profoundly original and yet familiar and expressive. His fingerprint is on it whether it is his earlier folk and Celtic-based renderings, his free-form improvisational material, or in settings, solo or ensemble. Undoubtedly, he is one of the world’s finest DADGAD players. His music reaches far beyond the idiom of a guitar played in a non-standard tuning, living by the rationale that music is not made for a specific instrument, but about musical ingredients and how you combine them.
In this first DVD Pierre teaches 10 compositions, exploring the techniques and skills required to play them, whilst also allowing an insightful glimpse into the mind of one of the world’s great guitarists.
