Ellie and Joel are both somewhat musical geniuses. So, if you fancy a break from killing Clickers, you can strum up a few creations of your own and learn how to play the guitar in The Last of Us 2.
By picking up a working guitar, players can control Ellie and play the guitar. Once you’ve picked up a guitar, you’ll see a circle on the screen which is divided into six sections, each containing a different note.
Players can use the left or right control stick on their PS4 controller to point to a chord on screen. Once a chord has been selected, simply swipe your finger over the touchpad to strum the guitar. If you want to pluck individual strings, simply tap the pad.
How to Play Your Own Songs on Guitar
When you pick up a guitar in The Last of Us 2, you’ll usually have to play the song that the game wants you to. Once you’ve finished playing, players can choose to practice with the guitar, choosing to play any song they want.
This is where the fun starts! It’s time to forget the Shamblers and grab Ellie’s guitar to create your own jams. Alternatively, players can play any song they know in the real-world like the ones below.
