The vocals come through okay here but could definitely use a little more 
presence. Never be shy about putting your vocals out front further than 
you think they should be. Many non-professional singers have a bit of 
reluctance when it comes to placing themselves forward in the mix.

I record my voice with two microphones of different quality, each to its 
own track in Ardour. I also record my guitar with a combination of 
acoustic sound (again with two microphones) and a DI send. I use a nice 
Dean bass for my bass parts, it just goes directly into the preamp.

The drums could stand to be better mixed too, but others here have 
addressed it better than I can. Unfortunately my recording space doesn't 
have room for real drums. :(
