You composed an upbeat and catchy tune, Max. Love it! Your YouTube guitar tutorials are very helpful, and I have learned to play some of your songs–thank you! Would you consider posting a tutorial of Guide Me and I Want You To Be Happy too?

We also have a version of that prayer. Intended for children. Somewhat slow in tempo or beat.

The chords are also helpful especially for beginners or those who want to learn to play guitar.

I liked this version of the prayer so much that I shared it on my profile page. Great job composing and singing!
