This piece was revealed a few years ago for a potential Last of Us Part II menu screen. We now know it’s titled, Beyond Desolation. At the time of this writing, I’m pouring over the brand new Last of Us Part II score by Gustavo Santaolalla. The music is just glorious.

I like that Santaolalla never tried to play something eerie or spooky for The Last of Us. He treated it more like a dramatic movie. By listening to music, you’d never know that zombies were even in the game.

For this piece I used a Cordoba Dolce guitar. You can find a current list of my gear here.

The guitar tab is beautifully written across two pages. You’ll play the guitar tab straight through taking care to repeat the opening section twice (within the brackets).

The initial “revealed” segment of this song was only half as long as what we now know as Beyond Desolation. Simply play through the entire tab twice — to achieve the length of soundtrack version.

Enjoy, the guitar tab is available below:

Beyond Desolation is played in standard tuning with a capo on the 3rd fret.
