This piece is a musical representation of the Crucifixion of Christ. This piece can be played on an acoustic or electric. It sounds beautiful on a 12-string. Although the piece in is the key of G Major, the opening chords are E min7 and C Maj7. E Minor is the relative minor of G Major, so the E min 7 and the C Maj7 chords (which are the IV chords to the G Major key) go very well together.

The piece begins with a dark and gloomy tone and should be played rather slowly and deliberately. The roots of E and C should be plucked emphatically, representing the pounding of the nails in Christ's hands. Near the end of the intro, the high E is played, representing the sharp agony our Savior endured on the Cross. The small hammer-on descending riff represents the blood of Christ being poured out on the ground.
