Hey I'm new here, and I have a question. Are there any tips on playing and singing? I'm having a lot of trouble with it, I tend to focus on the lyrics too much then end up not playing anything.

I spent the last 5 years singing lead and playing bass in a cover band and at first it is difficult but the best thing to do is just keep practicing the song and eventually your hands will take over and you'll be able to focus on the singing more.

start REAL slow... get faster... and faster... AND FAAASSTTER til your better!

on bits that you mess up with in terms of keeping rhythm, go over them extra slow sometimes, and practice....

Practice with songs that you know inside out. Makes it easier.

learn the song first and then the lyrics, and listen to the song a lot to be sure of your timing!
