The Last of Us (HBO)

Free audio download of this performance on SoundCloud.

HBO’s The Last of Us is being heralded as “the greatest video game adaptation ever”. No surprise as Craig Mazen is the executive producer and showrunner. His Chernobyl mini-series (on HBO) was one of the greatest shows I have ever seen. It’s a must watch.

The music from Gustavo Santaolalla (so far) is exactly from the game. However (in Episode 5) I did notice a few new themes from Santaolalla — which makes me excited for an official HBO series soundtrack. The ‘Opening Credits’ is just an abbreviated version of the iconic theme.

This guitar tab is beautifully written across 4 pages. Although there’s no difficult chord shapes, the relentless fingerstyle might be tough for beginner guitar players. Enjoy! The guitar tab is available below:
