I like the overall sound you've got going here. Nice guitar work!
I am having trouble hearing the lyrics though - would you mind posting them here? If you do, I'll comment on those later
As a couple of suggestions:
- I think Barefoot Blues is a stronger title than No Shoes Blues
- I'm not sure your intro is adding a lot to the song. Or at least I'm not seeing the connection to the rest as it seems quite different.
However, this is your song and suggestions are just that - for you to consider and adopt/reject as you see fit!
This is really good Man! I like it. I like fingerpickin' guitar and the music is good. Is this your first entry? I look forward to hearing more from you!

Any criticism is welcome. I'm aware that it's not the best recording. I like your guitar playing: good, clear and confident tone; nice time feel and control. The little prelude and shift into tempo worked nicely.
I like your voice, too: it melds well with your playing.
With a performance like this it strikes me that lyrics are almost superfluous. It could be a guy sitting on the back porch, making it up as he goes along. No shoes is cool, almost anything could have worked w/the mood your playing (and voice) set up.
