So, I have a few basic issues with my acoustic guitar right now, was really hoping you guys could shed some light on them.

1. I'm used to playing live with my acoustic, which has a pickup in it, running into a PA. As such I tend to sway with the music when I play. However this causes an inconsistent volume level. Any advice to get myself to stay still on recording?

2. Writing for self-accompaniment is a lot harder than I thought it'd be. Any advice to get that kind of "Ambient background music" feeling?

Light pickstrokes. Stick to the melody is the best way to get the accompanyment feel. and if you throw in a solo make it follow the vocal melody a la paul gilberts run in Mr. Big
