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 […]

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
