Great playing James! I’d be happy to give you feedback 🙂 First, I would remove the vibrato from the riff. I think it flows better with straight fingerpicking. Also, watch out with pulling the third string down on those chords. It will cause the chord to go sharp. So we always want to keep the strings straight when fretting notes to create chords.
In our beginner’s course, there’s an introductory lesson on strumming. This would be a good reference for you, as I noticed your strumming hand seems to be quite rigid. The lesson teaches you a couple of approaches for strumming and this will help to soften up the tone you produce.
Your timing is excellent and you’re doing extremely well, keep up the great work 🙂
