Watch the L' Alchimiste online guitar lesson by Pierre Bensusan from DADGAD Explorer: Guitar Intuite

This melody was inspired by reading the book of the same name by Brazilian writer Paulo Cuelho. I like the idea of fulfilling our dreams, whatever it takes, and going on the other side of the world to seek something that has always been under our feet. This song is dedicated to American/Cuban guitarist and singer Isaac Guillory who I met in Paris, then again in England and played with often.
