More about David Welker:
I am a hobby classical guitarist. While I have no really formal musical theory or arranging training, I did play the trombone in the BYU Marching Band, - akin to staying at the Holiday Inn Express. I began playing the trombone at the age of 10 upon quitting guitar lessons because my mother said I had to play something. I started playing the guitar when I was 8 when I quit piano lessons after only one lesson, having been teased by older siblings. Sadly, I was not mature enough to fully appreciate classical guitar at the time, but I picked it back up after our first child was born when my wife told me my other guitars were too noisy. So I bought a Yamaha Classical guitar at the main Yamaha store in Shibuya, Japan and tried to retrain myself. Recently a young man I worked with on my mission sent me "How Great Thou Art" which he had arranged for classical guitar. I played it back for him and he challenged me to arrange something myself and send it back. That something became "The Lord is My Shepherd"...and I am now slowly arranging some of my other favorite hymns...
Song background:

I accompanied my wife's angelic voice with my classical guitar and sang harmony in sacrament meeting to this long time favorite hymn when our son returned from his mission a few years ago.  This is an outgrowth of that accompaniment, only that arrangement went from C to D.  I liked the 4/4 bridge of that arrnagement so well it bacame the third verse here.  When I accidentally got to an ending I really liked, I skipped the part in D and went back to a lower key I could play and found a way into C ...although probably not a very good. [feel free to contact me with suggestions]  :)
