Gustavo Santaolalla: Main Theme, The Last of Us Part 2

I'm not a gamer, mainly because of my age. I was already an adult when the first Nintendo games appeared. I spent a couple of weeks trying to beat level one and two of the original Mario Brothers. When I realized that, at the end of each level, there was just going to be another dragon who was harder to beat than the last one, it seemed rather pointless. I didn't go any farther than that in playing the games. Over the years, I watched my kids (who are now adults) play various games and I respect how they have become more story-oriented.

The popular "The Last of Us" game has a pretty cool soundtrack, some of which features music from Gustavo Santaolalla. This video of him playing the main theme from Part 2 has a nice sense of drama. I love the tone of the instrument and the performance is good. It's an easy piece to learn as well.
