I am working on keeping my left fingers closer to the strings. It is going to take some practice.
The strings will settle down, you could try over stretching them - at the end of playing tune them up a semitone and leave for a while. They seem to give a reasonable tone.
The piece sounds good and the finger position will come with practice.
Good to try the different RH positions and tone.
It looks as if at one point you use the tip of LH thumb to put pressure on the centre of neck. You would be better to keep ball of thumb somewhere near centre as tip is weak. This might also help with finger position. You don't actually need much thumb pressure, main pressure should come from weight of arm, try to keep thumb as light as possible it's less tiring.
Overall coming on well.
