Did Joseph Quinn really play guitar in Stranger Things?

Yes, Joseph Quinn actually played guitar in that iconic Stranger Things scene.

The actor was already proficient at playing the guitar and revealed that when he read the script he bought a new guitar to start practicing.

He told that Los Angeles Times: “They sent me a few emails asking if I play guitar and I said yes, I do.

“Then they sent the script over and I kind of imploded and went to buy a guitar asap and started practicing.”

Speaking about the scene, he added: “It’s crazy. It does so many things. I think this is the only world where something like that can happen and it doesn’t feel like an imitation. It doesn’t feel forced. And hilariously, it doesn’t feel melodramatic.

“It just feels right. And more than anything, it’s just plain fun. It’s that energy through that whole kind of ridiculous sequence that brings all of those storylines together. That crescendo was just so inventive and ultimately so entertaining.”
