On the vocals you sound fairly nasal, you should try singing more from your stomach, also try and open everything up. Your whole throat all the way down makes the sound, and the passages in your head allow the proper airflow to let it out (if you get head congestion its really annoying). So if you want that to be a fuller sound (and you should) it has to be open, though when you make that change you may find that you'll have to get a little more air flow, so be ready to make that ajustment. Though the mood of the song doesnt lend itself to really busting it out, so if you catch on fast dont get too carried away.

Also I think it would be good for you to "juice up" the singing melody a bit, sort of get more of the transitioning notes in there a bit, and maybe even change it somewhat to be more... medolic. Like perhaps start the word "creation's" a little bit earlier so you can start from 2 notes higher and step down, like "cre-e-ation's" and the dashes signify the note changes, though its a subtle thing. Remember the instruments generally carry the melody, not set the pattern for the melody to follow exactly, so don't be affraid to venture out beyond them and make it really beautiful. It's such a hard thing to explain, though the musical style of the song traces back to early american folk and even further back to ireland, so you may want to check out that stuff and take notes on fine melodies (no pun intended).

As for the guitar playing that is some good stuff! I wish I was that good.
