having trouble
    #2439799 - 03/16/04 04:40 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

I have been playing guitarfor about 2 years minus about 4 and half months when i stopped playing.

I didnt know if anyone here could help, but i need to learn how to sing and play at the same time. I can sing a couple of songs and play them but even then my strumming is off key a little bit.

So my question is: How can i learn how to play and sing?
Does anyone here have a method on how to learn and sing?

Covering songs really helps with this. This way, your brain knows how the song is supposed to sound, so when your doing it, it eventually becomes and instinct. It's not going to happen over-night, just try the same song every day....then elaborate on what you've got down. I remember when I had trouble switching from various chords to other chords when I first started....and with practice, everything gets easier.

Yeah, and just keep practicing, you'll get it.


The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein

start simple, with easy strumming, first position chords, and not too complicated singing rhythms. It's tough, I've been playing guitar for years and cant' sing and play at the same time. But then again, I can't sing, so I haven't really tried that hard :wink:

I can't sing and play very well, but I find it's helpful to find one word per measure on a beat that coincides with strumming, and I use those as markers.

do it.

do it more.

do it even more.

get very frustrated and stop.

do it more.

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.
