I often say music is like the soundtrack of our lives.

It’s like a time machine for our ears.

…And that is the topic of the Acoustic Asylum podcast today.


I had fun recording this episode (I always do, but this was an extra nice trip down memory lane).

In this episode, I share some tips on how the songs that remind you of special times in your life can be powerful.

You know, the songs that remind you of your parents, or songs that bring back memories of when you met your spouse, the first dance at your wedding, or tunes you and your kids sang together when they were growing up.

These are all very special memories.


You can learn these songs on the guitar, which is great.

…But in the podcast, I also share how if these songs are hard to play for you right now, you can do something else with them instead.

Plus, I talk about little things such as why you might want to write a song that reminds you of these times.

…And how the “Gatekeeper” of the Acoustic Asylum was once an ordinary, normal person and why there is hope for him yet (if he does this one thing).

It’s a fun little episode and I hope you enjoy it.
