The Passion of the Christ is one of the greatest films of all time. If you're a believer, it serves as a cinematic Stations of the Cross; an experiential work of pure art. In it's wake, all faith-based film making seems tepid by comparison.

Although, the film was immediately embroiled in controversy, The Passion of the Christ received 3 Academy Award nominations. 20 years onward, it has stood the test of time. The film has become a modern classic. In my mind, it's up there with movies like: The Last of the Mohicans, Braveheart (Mel Gibson), and Dances with Wolves.

John Debney's Oscar nominated music is beautifully haunting. Resurrection is final piece.

Gear used

For this piece, I used my Cordoba C7 Cedar. It’s a relatively inexpensive guitar, that sounds dark and warm, but retains brightness in high strings. You can find a current list of my gear here.

The guitar tab for this piece is beautifully written across 2 pages. I recommend this for intermediate guitar players and up. You'll have to be very comfortable with barre chords.

At 1:39, this arrangement is definitely an etude: a short, technical music composition. I love playing etudes as they’re sophisticated — but without the time investment.

Enjoy, the guitar tab is available below:
