I don't have any recording equipment so it's simply a headset speaker next to my amp and audacity my friend and I will watch yours once I get home

Like dagget said. Your playing is good but I'd upgrade the setup. Have you tried free amp sims with Reaper? I've been able to get some good tones out of TSE 808 + Poulin amps + Guitarhack impulses, maybe give that a try. As for drums, Steven Slate Custom is pretty cheap, that'll improve them quite a lot (http://www.stevenslatedrums.com/custom.php).
