I got a guitar and I play for you, time to learn ...
These lines from an old song are a reminder that even playing is an act of love and you don't have to be Hendrix to express this feeling. The guitar is first introduced into the game by gruff Joel, who promises the young girl to teach her to play in her spare time. Before leaving Ellie alone, the man sits down and starts playing a beautiful version of "Future Days" song by the American grunge / rock group Pearl Jam.
Often, this type of videogame interludes is left to a cutscene, but the genius of Naughty Dog has allowed us to interact with the instrument through a unique find, in fact, they have managed to find a concrete use to the touchpad di PS4, transforming it into the strings of the guitar. So by choosing the chords available on the screen and moving your thumb you can get all kinds of melodies.
During her long journey, Ellie will have the opportunity to find a guitar several times and practice her way. What if we told you that thanks to the available chords it is possible to play some of the most famous pieces of music? Find out in this particular guide how to do it and what you need to know.
Playing a guitar takes time, and someone who has spent several years learning this art tells you, fortunately The Last of Us Part 2 will save you all the hours spent learning the correct fingering, from hammer toes to the ost barrè. You will only have to know the English nomenclature of the notes, in fact, as you can see from the image it is not written anywhere "Do", "Sol" o "There", replaced by "C", "G" e "TO". Here is which notes correspond to the letters on the screen:
| A = LA
| B = YES
| C = DO
| D = RE
| E = MI
| F = FA
| G = SOL
Also, you may run into some strange symbols, especially if you are new to the complicated world of music writing, we are talking about "sharp" and "flat". The first, similar to a hashtag it is used to indicate a note or a chord raised by a semitone, the second instead resembles a "B" and is used to indicate a note or a chord one semitone lower.
Among the other things you will see on the screen, there are also the major and minor chords, the latter are recognizable thanks to a "M" lower case lower right.
Which songs can be played
Now let's move on to the part that many of you were waiting for, thanks to this very particular feature it is possible to play the following melodies (which we will take care of updating). Don't give up if some seem difficult, Naughty Dog's chord system takes some time to master.
Here are the songs that you can play from the first moments of the game:
| Californication - Red Hot Chili Peppers (chords)
| Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd (chords)
| Black Hole Sun - Sound Garden (chords)
| Hallelujah - Leonard Cohen (chords)
| Bella Ciao (chords)
| Zombie - The Cranberries (chords)
| What's Up - 4 Non Blondes (chords)
| Seven Nation Army - The White Stripes (chords)
| Redemption Song - Bob Marley (chords)
| Creep - Radiohead (chords)
| The song of the Sun - Lucio Battisti (chords)
| Knockin 'on Heaven's Door - Bob Dylan (chords)
| Nothing Else Matter - Metallica (chords)
| Asylum for the Feeling - Silent Poets (chords)
If you are a real novice and have some problems remembering the position of the different chords, we recommend that you start from the piece by Battisti, in fact with the use of three simple chords (all in the same circle) and a little familiarity, you will be able to master it in a short time.
