An Old Heart: a song for guitar by Evan Handyside + TAB

An Old Heart (Americana, ambient classical guitar)

In late August I was asked and honored to write some music for an upcoming movie. The movie, is in the vein of Alexander Payne’s, Nebraska.

Payne’s films often revolve around middle-aged or older men who reach a breaking point in their lives, enter into transformative existential crises, and then emerge in the end as changed people. There’s also usually dark humor and satirical depictions of contemporary American society.

However, the director ultimately felt my music missed the mark, and he’s moving in a different direction.

Although disappointing, I’m an artist with crystal clear vision, so I respect the director. He’ll no doubt find someone more suitable for his vision.

I was so excited to get the opportunity — that I glossed over a crucial cue that was given to me very early: the music must be unsentimental. I then proceeded to write the most sentimental collection of songs one could imagine. It’s right for something, just not this.

However, I am still left with an entire score that I’m really proud of. So, I intend to release it over the next few months on: YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, and SoundCloud.

The title of my “lost score” is An Old Heart. The music is tender, melancholy, and small town American. You can find this song as a high quality free download on SoundCloud.
