Your problem is that $Player doesn't get a valid node.

$Player is equivalent to get_node("Player") which means "get a child of this node named 'Player'". Player is clearly not a child of this node.

You must use the actual path to the player node. I don't know what that is because you haven't shown what your scene setup is.

Misunderstanding node paths is a common beginner error. This may help:
