Hey everybody, I'm kinda new to recording. I'm a fairly decent guitar player, and I just got my hands on a mixer and a couple microphones. I have already recorded everything I want, and it sounds fairly decent in the mix, but I just want to know how to master the whole thing. Can anybody point me in the direction of a very good guide on how to master the song and make it sound as professional quality as it can? Thanks a lot!

don't even try unless you have some half decent monitors, trust me.

If you've got decent monitors, give this a quick watch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XH1NbFY7PvE

Its not really in depth but gives you a general overview of what you want to do.

You should pick up this month's Computer Music magazine, there's a whole section on mastering and the DVD comes with a bunch of tools and tutorials you can use to follow along!
