The Last of Us' Ellie Can't Play Guitar, But She Can Sure Rock a Violin

Audio from the end of the world

Father figure Joel may promise to teach Ellie how to play guitar at one point in PlayStation 3 – and soon-to-be PlayStation 4 – exclusive The Last of Us, but we didn’t realise that the potty mouthed protagonist was already something of a whiz on the violin.
