make a make shift vocal booth in your wardrope...you want to lay the vocals down as clean as possible..u can always add efects on but not take anything off.
make the vocalist comfortable, the more at ease they are the better they will perform.
take lots of takes....dont worry about making them do something over and over again..its thier job :D

not THAT much but i've recorded a few tunes with my own vocals (even sang on one tune lmao!) tbh i heavily process most my vox anyways depending on the tune eg one i used a lot of distortion and some detuning to make those keith flint prodigy like shouting vocals and other more melow ones i drenched in reverb and delay etc

let us hear it when ur done mate! :D

make a make shift vocal booth in your wardrobe
This.

Open the wardrobe doors, set the mic stand up infront of the wardrobe door and hang a thick duvet over each of the doors to stop refraction.

What mic are you using? You'll need a decent condenser mic to get good results.
