Okay, so I'm having trouble with playing a certain song, and singing at the same time.

The guitar part is really easy, and the singing is easy, too. The problem is, they're like... In completely different realms, if that makes sense.

The song is this:

Can you give me any advice on how to play and sing that better? My problem is, I get the rhythm on the guitar, and the rhythm on the vocals confused with each other, I think.

Thanks for the help.

Yeah, practice. But I really posted to tell you I love you. First RHCP, then I see you have a Squier (I do too), but want a HRD (which I bought a couple of months ago) and a Standard Strat (I'm saving to buy an American one now). Sorry for the off-topic.

Okay, thanks. Lol.

EDIT: LOL LOL LOL. I see. Yeah, The Chili Peppers are [one of] the best man! And Thats cool, lol. Hope it all works out. I'm building a custom electric right now. It's going to be similar to a strat, but in no way a rip-off/copy. It DOES/WILL have the HSS Pickup config though.

Get the vocals down pat. Maybe sing to a recording of you playing guitar? Then take it piece by piece.

Like every one said... practice is key.

There are no genres in metal that end with "core."

Practise the guitar part, until it just comes to you naturally and you can do it perfectly whilst doing something else, not necessarily singing though.
Then practise the vocal line until again, that just comes to you naturally.

THEN try practising both together.

try just humming the song while you play, eventually it will turn into you being able to sing it
