    Sounds really good Marisa. I have watched some of your other videos and think it’s really cool that you perform live. That takes a lot of courage and a passion to grow in your abilities. Not sure how receptive you are to suggestions…I looked up the song and it appears to be in 4/4 with a pretty slow bpm. The song felt a little fast and a little bit off beat at times. Maybe it’s just the video though. I can’t hear the bassist at all. But I would say practice your timing and being completely in sync with the bassist. Let him lead you through the song and sync your strumming pattern to the root notes he is playing. The acoustic should have a strong percussive element since there is no drummer. I offer this only because I am going through the same thing with my own playing. I play on the worship team at my church and am learning a lot about time signatures, not playing too fast, and working out the role the acoustic has when playing live. Take care.
