Pretty solid, clear sound and even rhythm. Just a few nitpicks, in a couple of the "uneven" groups (I don't know what you call these groups of two notes one short and one long that form a beat) the notes were not held to their full duration. And even though the left hand pinky is not used in this song, it should be positioned closer to the fretboard to keep the palm more parallel with the neck.
About new strings, I changed my strings 2 weeks ago, and they still stretch like crazy. Wasting 10 mins or more on tuning every time I practice.
Thanks for the input. I do have a problem with the pinky on both hands; it seems to have a mind of its own, and an up-tight one at that.
I'm giving Lundi Matin a try and using the left hand thumb is not easy. I'm thinking it's more of an exercise in hand control rather than musicality since the sound produced by the thumb stroke is so different than that of the rest of the strokes. Or at least it is when I try it.
