Hey there Mike,
You are right - I did know this song, but I never knew the name of it.
I thought your performance was very good. You kept the strum going steadily, you sang it very well, and you were comfortable enough to look at the camera a few times, so it was very engaging.

Sorry for getting to you so late, but i've just returned from California and normal life is finally starting to roll again.
In thruth, I didn't know the song, but i enjoyed it nonetheless. I thought you did a fantastic job, both singing, playing and engaging. Having fun there too tops it off I'd say!
The only suggestion that i would have is to catch a particular downstroke with an upstroke, since it's the 'and' of a beat (the 'and' of beat 2). Like 'Ba-by' (0.29/0.30), basically that's a downstroke followed by a missed downstroke and then the accentuated off beat/upstroke. So down on beat 1, a missed downstroke on beat 2 (keep your hand moving) and an upstroke at the 'and' of beat two.
I hope that makes sense.
Many thanks for your video, it was great to see and hear you again!
