Pour rendre les musiques de Brassens vivantes et accessibles à tous, le compositeur et guitariste Yves Uzureau signe ici l'inattendu : d'une half, un très ludique " roman-méthode de guitare " ; d'autre half, loin de l'habituel solfège, un " système inédit de tablatures " qui permettra à chacun, même au néophyte, de devenir un interprète actif des chansons de Brassens.
