Hey, I've only been playing bass since Christmas (and regular guitar since the Christmas before) and I was wondering how long it took some of you singer/bassists to really be able to sing while playing specific basslines?

Sometimes I have trouble singing if the bass is "bouncy" but the vocals aren't, if you know what I mean. Example: I was just doing some Beatles songs, and "Happiness is a Warm Gun" goes with the vocal timing, so it was easy. But "Help!" doesn't go with the voice. I've even memorized "Help" to an extent, and it helps, (haha) but the verse is still tricky.
When I played bass, I was able to sing and play from almost the very beginning. I still have trouble playing guitar and singing, though.

It was the only task I would undertake...

...to reap the harvest that was mine

certain songs are easy, certain ones are impossible...

if you can already sing and play easy stuff, then it's just gonna take experience
