Hi, Lewis, and Welcome. Here are my thoughts...

The song has a nice feel to it, but the tuning issues with the guitar were quite off-putting. Everything is magnified when recording, so those things really need to be paid attention to very closely. Also, the strumming is a bit clunky. I'm not saying I don't like the song, but simply offering feedback for growth. Keep at it and keep working hard.

Hello Lewis and welcome.
Speaking as the world's foremost authority on what I like, I can assure you that I really liked it.
I feel that you may want to investigate a tuning that will allow a big low bass note on your tonic chord - especially if it is to remain a sparse arrangement featuring the guitar.
Well done.
