Thanks for the comments from everyone! I did actually record the
guitar and singing in a single track, doing both at the same time made
me less scared of the singing because i had something to keep me busy!
Next track i'll record one thing at a time. Dave, what do you mean
about the guitars being better balanced? Just the volume of lead vs
rhythm or tone/playing style? Do you still recommend caps plate vs
convolution reverb? I've got a lot of spare cpus :)
