All Gone (No Escape)

Free download of this performance on SoundCloud. 

All Gone (No Escape) is originally an orchestral piece. It’s arguably the most achingly beautiful selection from The Last of Us soundtrack. It was fun to imagine what Gustavo Santaolalla might’ve played on guitar. The piece turned out to be a beautiful fingerstyle guitar arrangement.
