“Invited” is of course, by multi-instrumentalist composer, Gustavo Santaolalla. Having won 2 Academy Awards, he’s widely considered one of the greatest film-composers of all time. This piece is originally played on Santaolalla’s signature instrument, the Ronroco (a small Andean guitar).

The Last of Us is a post-apocalyptic drama created by Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann for HBO. The series is based on the video game developed by Naughty Dog. The HBO show is set 20 years into a zombie-like pandemic that was caused by a mass fungal infection. Season 1 follows Joel (Pedro Pascal), a smuggler tasked with escorting an immune teenager Ellie (Bella Ramsey) across the United States.

This arrangement is beautifully written across 2 pages. I recommend it for beginner and intermediate guitar players. The song is so short, that it’s a perfect etude for novice guitarists. Enjoy, the guitar tab is available below:
