Here are some of the things that are holding me back.

Buzzing when fretting with my pinky. Same for chords with 2 fingers next to each other.

When pulling two strings together, my fingers go too far away and cause a delay.

Hitting a string with my thumb and the one next to it with my index finger feels awkward.

Delay when going to the same fret on the next string.

Alternating right hand fingers on the same string.

Many of chord transitions, still.

And ooh, barre chords.

Timing and keeping momentum is important too like Sonics and Mr beaumont mentioned. I still am not so good at that even on the piano. Maybe I should start using a metronome.

@merlin666 I still can't play by the ear but I badly want to learn.
Try to make up short exercises that address each of your problems you listed and work on them. Also just relax and play some tunes for fun.
