Hi Pierre!

Have you tried with the development version (currently 2.13.21)?

The vertical spacing system has been completely changed (improved) and
I managed to obtain "a pdf as small as possible with just the tablature
on 1 page" quite easily by simply changing the "paper-height" value of

If you do so please have a look at the new documentation (2.13), since
the syntax for most of the vertical spacing variables has changed :
http://lilypond.org/doc/v2.13/Documentation/notation/vertical-spacing#Vertical-spacing

and you should replace it by something like
between-system-spacing = #'((padding . 2))  % dimension is "staff-spaces"

OFF-TOPIC

Since you seems to be French, did you know that there is also a
LilyPond French Users mailing-list where you can discuss and get some
help in French ?
