Nice, well done!

Just a couple things in terms of technique and tone, try to move your picking hand a bit closer to the bridge(about an inch away from the sound hole) to get more of that gypsy sound out. On technique(you don't have to be overly critical on all of these aspects, neither am I or Robin Nolan for that matter), there's a technique called gypsy picking and there are certain things that are very important to get the right sound out. First one is that down strokes are favourable, this means start every phrase on a new string with a downstroke. After a downstroke a rest stroke follows which means that you will let you pick fall to the string and rest on the string below it. If you go through another little sweeps are used(pretty much economy picking).

Last but not least, try to incorporate a floating wrist(it's a pain for the fast stuff so you don't have to be overly critical on this) but for slower stuff try to have your wrist floating instead of leaning on the strings you don't play.

Thank you for your suggestion. I'll keep that in mind.
