Great stuff!

Sort of a Chet Atkins approach to the tune.

VERY nicely done. Just looking at some of those shapes makes my fingers hurt.

Very nice. I'm a fingerpicker sans thumbpick as well. I find I can control dynamics much better with my are thumb. Sounds like you've found the same thing. I enjoyed.

Outstanding. I like the intro and ending very much, your chords are well-chosen, your picking technique is very good, and you get a good sound. One bit of constructive criticism... the passages where the corresponding lyrics would be: "and my heart beats so that I can hardly speak" (and in another verse: "and the cares that hung around me through the week"), are a bit rough melodically. I wonder if the tempo you've chosen is causing that part to be problematic. I would suggest working on that part of the melody, maybe at a slower tempo, until you've got it smoothed out, and then take the tempo back up.

Thanks for sharing your talent!

Good stuff man. Nice tone. +1 on the Chet. Maybe a little Johnny A. style also?
