The Acoustic Guitar is a common musical instrument in RUST and can be equipped to play particular guitar notes, for both the entertainment or harassment of other players.
You can manually play the acoustic guitar by pressing
mouse one and
mouse two. You can also press the
R key to turn your keyboard into an array of instrumental notes.
Alternatively, you can hook up a midi-player to play your favorite songs, or you can load midi’s into your RUST folder and play them using the RUST console command line.

If you do not like RUST’s instruments, you can turn them off in the settings without affecting other game sounds.
Some players will use instruments, such as the acoustic guitar, Plumber’s Trumpet, Junkyard Drum Kit, and others as a means to lure unsuspecting players to their roleplay-friendly base, only to turn on them and have their teammates spring an ambush, or better yet, they may use electrical system traps that trigger once players are within kill range.
Be wary of those sweet beats!
