Yes,  I believe you do.  Perhaps someone more computer savvy will chime in here with details.

You're doing good for having no teacher. Need to slow down and get your timing on beat.

My teacher, the esteemed Geoff Hohwald, has me use a metronome to fix timing issues. Once you have the timing right, play it without mistakes for ten times in a row. If you can't do that, keep trying and get it there before moving on.

Timing is the key.
