Test Acoustic/Vocals recording - what's missing?

Just got a whole bunch of new equipment - and tonight I tried to do a quick acoustic test with some of it.

Check this audio file out and tell me what you think. It's just a demo of me singing/playing - ignore the performances (they're not too great) - I'm more interested in how I can improve the tone.

For miking the guitar, I used a RØDE K2 and AKG C1000S in combination, for vocals - just the RØDE K2.

There's some light EQ just to even things out a little.

Thanks a lot,

Hey Jason, nice stuff by the way. Well played and sung. Lots of feeling there for sure.

I think the recording quality is pretty good, the main problem I am noticing is that there seems to be some phasing issues going on.

Probably with your A/D converters or more likely whatever you compressed the audio file down to that I listened to.

What converters are you using, and what did you compress that file down to ?

Or, if you were tracking things live, phase issues with all the mics ?
