The Last of Us HBO is one of the best series you’ll ever watch. It was pitch perfect. Of course, the music was integral to the games experience — so naturally Gustavo Santaolalla was brought back for the HBO series. Forsaken is minimalist piece from the soundtrack. It’s actually played on a guitar banjo — which is a 6 string banjo strung like a literal guitar.

The piece is really short, so I doubled the length.

The guitar tab for this piece is beautifully written across 2 pages. I recommend this piece for beginner guitar players and up. The song is so short the novice guitarists can get into something sophisticated without feeling overwhelmed.

Enjoy, the guitar tab is available below:

Forsaken is played straight through without repeats.
