The Gift

This episode talks about my mission to help share the gift of both playing music for you, and to tap into the infinite power required for you to do this on your own. The power is available to everyone who chooses to accept it and take it on. Wishing you the happiest holidays today.

The Trey Anastasio Method for Inspired Play

The Trey Anastasio Method for Inspired Play

In this week's episode of Elliott's Podcast, I talk about encouraging a sense of play with music and how that might be different from our traditional ideas about practice.   

I also show a great holiday gift for guitarists to play in the morning, the Mustang Micro, as well as the iReal Pro app for generating backing tracks to play along to.   

The song I played along to was called Thursday Night, Friday Morning by IKSRE and Party Store:

The Enormity of Nature (Just Sit in the Park)

The Enormity of Nature (Just Sit in the Park)

Sitting in a park is an underrated habit. Better if you can go by yourself, and top marks if you go to one that is outside of your neighbourhood. Just look on the map and get out there.   Your time in the park is the perfect antidote to the stress of living in the city.

Harnessing a Sense of Surrender

Harnessing a Sense of Surrender

The idea that naturally came about this week is to continue writing a piece of music for another lake that I visited on this month’s hiking trip. We stayed on three lakes, so this week I wrote a piece called Harness and paired it with the video from that one.

Elliott's Music Mix Series: Furnishing the Cosmos

Elliott's Music Mix Series: Furnishing the Cosmos

Today I bring you my latest mix which compiles music that was originally recorded on my podcast in roughly the month of May but a bit of April as well. These mixes are created for my patrons on Patreon but I thought it would be nice to share it on my podcast feed. The patrons get a higher quality FLAC download of this. 

There is one track in there that is technically unreleased called How to Disappear into the Thin Air. Other than this track all the music made here is done in some sort of improvisation for the podcast.

The name of this mix is a reference to Erik Satie who worked on "Furniture Music" which was essentially the muzak of his time. Those compositions were meant to be easy going and so accessible they could be played in the background of a furniture store while people went shopping.

I would like to think that this music can be put on in the background, and since I'm mostly playing guitar throughout all the pieces, that it's almost as if I am sitting in the corner playing for you.

If someone hired me to serenade their party, this is what I would ideally play. I wouldn't want people to focus on me with any sort of intensity like they do a traditional concert.

So in a way, this mix is almost like a prototype of a live show that I could one day play, even though it's stitched together over a few weeks of Elliott's Podcast.

The Waves of Infinity (Electric Piano and Pedal Steel Guitar Ambient)

There is no talking in this video but I was lucky to catch some waves on the dock at my friend's cottage this past weekend over on Lake Simcoe in Ontario.   

Day to day we have things that disrupt and interrupt us but our ability to find some calm and a sense of presence will always renew itself like the waves of infinity.   

Visit my website at for more info about where to find my music. Thanks for being here now with me.
