One Hand Raised – Evan Handyside (ambient, post-rock guitar) + TAB

One Hand Raised I’m still in the swing (pardon the pun) of creating sports theme pieces. I have a couple of potential film projects in the works. I can’t really say more than that because, in all honesty, I haven’t formerly gotten either gig yet. […]

Victory: (ambient, driving acoustic guitar) by Evan Handyside + TAB

V I C T O R Y Victory continues a writing experiment that began with my song On Hallowed Ground: sports themed music in the vein of Friday Night Lights and Moneyball. My music, of course, sounds nothing like these film scores, but I used […]

On Hallowed Ground: (ambient, contemporary guitar) by Evan Handyside + TAB

On Hallowed Ground I wrote this song while thinking about the perseverance of a sports team against all odds. Which is essentially the personal story line of every team and athlete. More specifically, a team with a legacy and expectation of winning. Maybe things are […]

Steady Hands: (ambient, Americana guitar) by Evan Handyside + TAB

Steady Hands I wish I had more to say about this piece. I wrote it for a film that I was briefly associated with. As it turned out my music wasn’t right for the project — but I’m sure it will get used elsewhere at […]

Flight: (ambient, world guitar) by Evan Handyside + TAB

Flight Photo: Eamonn Maguire Free download on SoundCloud. I wrote this song in 15 minute long flow state. Artists, musicians, writers, and creators experience the “flow state” often.

Jack and the Dustbowl: Belief (Nicholas Kirk) for guitar + TAB

[Forgive the unsightly gash on the top of my head in the beginning of the video. I have a two-year-old boy, which means at any time my noggin can be pelted with flying blocks. No hair to conceal it!] My friend Micah Albert inadvertently turned […]

An Old Heart 3: a song for guitar by Evan Handyside + TAB

I originally wrote all of the music for (what I now call) An Old Heart for another movie. It was a great opportunity, but as it turned out, my music was too sentimental and not a good fit for the film. I’ve written about that […]

Silent Night – Minimalist guitar for beginners + TAB

I’m so enamoured with Gustavo Santaolalla’s guitar playing, that I try to channel his minimalist sensibility with the music I do. I really like this understated arrangement of Silent Night. Everything is in the right place. Guitar doesn’t have to be complicated to be beautiful. […]

21 Grams is a 2003 American drama film directed by director Alejandro González Iñárritu, also the director of: The Revenant, Babel, Birdman. 21 Grams is groundbreaking, in that the storytelling is non-linear. You’re presented with three people, with three seemingly unrelated stories — until they’re […]

Arrival: Kangaru for guitar (Jóhann Jóhannsson) + TAB

I’m very excited to see Arrival — but with a 19 month-old at home, my movie watching has taken a serious hit. Even still, I’ve been a huge Denis Villeneuve fan ever since his movie Prisoners, which is also scored by Jóhann Jóhannsson. Principally, Jóhann Jóhannsson is […]

An Old Heart 2: a song for guitar by Evan Handyside + TAB

This music was originally written for another movie. Ultimately my music wasn’t used in the film, but I’m still pleased with my work. Actually, even though it wasn’t right for the movie, this collection of music might be my greatest achievement. You can get the […]
