I finally got my recording software to work so I made a tiny little 40 second jam. I was wondering if you guys can give me some pointers particularly on my strumming? I feel like the chords I have get the point across but I don't know how to make them sound cleaner and not as basic. Thanks for any feedback

Learn different rhythms, and also learn how to accent if you don't want it to sound basic. Having a great right hand is what makes a great rhythm player. That's where all the dynamics lay in a nut shell.
