Add drums to this short song

Anyone interested in adding some drums to my first song? Not the best recording in the world, but for a first song I don't think it's that bad. Maybe you can improve on it?

For a demo recording like this, you're probably best off just adding midi drums yourself. If the problem is that you don't know how to write drums, it'll be useful to learn. Download some GP tabs, and see how the drum parts are written.

It's also next to impossible to add drums in after the fact unless the rest of the song has been perfectly recorded.

Well, midi drums with a (probably) unmastered, guitars-only demo could probably work.
Oh, and TS, I know you're just trying to make it seem more reasonable, but this isn't "short". "Short" is less than three minutes. This is "average-length".

More to do with timing than anything else.

It's recorded to a click, I checked. 90 BPM.

Well tickle me sideways.

I'd probably do it if I didn't have essays to write and exams to revise for. I'm procrastinating just by writing this post.

Double the distorted guitars and them pan them separately. Adding drums to this would just sound absolutely awful. Also, use a different guitar tone, it's way, way too sharp.
