Here you go. Keep in mind I have a grip between an Eastern and a Semi-Western, so it may not be as horizontal. I paused it at what I think is the pat the dog position. Let me know if it's OK. Thanks!
Lower takeback is better. Could be lower - level with your head. Racquet face is still too open.
More importantly, there's no employment of the kinetic chain in your shadow swing. Remember this video? Check out the explanation of kinetic chain starting with the legs, hips, shoulders and arm. The kinetic chain is what generates acceleration at contact.
