How to do a selective darkening of part of a photo in Lightroom?

I have a photo that has quite a distracting corner: if you divide it by the rule of thirds it's bit less than half of the bottom right corner.Can I use Lightroom to darken that corner? I don't know; maybe with something like a gradient from black to transparent?

...yes you can use either a gradient or the adjustment brush...but why even ask? Just try the tools you think my work...don't be scared to try something, this isn't a life-altering decision...just do it!
