Hi Bhujay, nicely done.

It's one of my favourites too... achingly beautiful.

One of the things I try to do is change the dynamics during the repeats. For example, play the repeat of a section much quieter than the 1st time you played it, or vice versa.

Nicely played! You create a solemn mood with good tone fitting the aria.
I would suggest trying to keep the melody lines a bit more together, sometimes you let go of the melody finger shortening the note and cutting up the phrase. Such as in the second bar, the A should sound all the way to G sharp so make that transition as smooth as possible.
Same thing in the syncopated parts (bar 3 for example), try to get the fingers to move individually so that you don't release the melody finger just because you move the bass finger, and vice versa.

I would add to this point some suggestion- why don't you try to change a timbre when repeat a section- for example quieter-mild tone, near to the neck(sul tasto) That can make the difference between repetitions more clear.

I like your playing, thanks for sharing this nice tune.

Good luck!

I like how you play it, nice voice separation.

I will suggest just one thing to help prevent mishaps with the chord on the 1st beat of measure 3, as happens to you the second time around (during the repeat). The trick is to change the fingering on the previous chord (2nd beat of measure 2), so that the transition to the next chord is made a lot easier.
Try doing the chord on the 2nd beat of measure 2 with fingers 1, 2 and 3 (instead of 1, 3 and 4). This may seem very hard at first, but it can be done. The trick is to bring the thumb down almost to the lower edge of the neck, or even detach the thumb completely from the neck by pressing the guitar against your chest with your right arm. This will eventually allow you to obtain enough separation between fingers 1 and 2, such that finger 2 can be on G# while finger 1 is on E on the fourth string, while finger 3 is on E on the second string. Once you can do this, the transition to the next chord (1st beat of measure 3) is so much easier, because finger 3 is already where it should be, on the second string E, and acts as an anchor and pivot to place 1 and 4 where they need to be without any trouble, whereas the way you do it you need to reposition all the fingers.
Before I figure out how to do this, I was messing up the transition to measure 3 more often than not, or else I had to do it too slowly.
