know the songs lyrics and how the song goes. and PRACTICE!

Learn the song (music) first before trying to sing at the same time with it. The rhythm on the guitar is a bit syncopated........get comfortable with it, so you don't have to think about while playing.

Once you got that down....then work on singing to it.

Learn music first then lyrics.

Your post is misleading. I thought SIGN and PLAY what you got four hands..

Yeah that's what I thought. I was interested to see how he planed to accomplish that.

Junior's usually at least a little terse, but he knows his stuff. I've always read his posts in a grouchy grandfather voice, a grouchy grandfather with a huge stiffy for alternate picking.
Besides that, he's right this time. As usual.

Practice with easy songs first, then get more complicated, some songs are really hard. I can't sing and play lead at the same time unless its super simple, I doubt many can...

or
Just play hammers and pull-offs and you sign your name with your picking hand..

I can sign and play at the same time but I can only sign the letter Q or G depending on how cute the girls in the front row are.

But seriously, Umm, I started with easy songs..
Like, Nirvana songs.
I'm now the Singer, songwriter, and lead guitarist for a quite successful band

easy or hard it still still takes practice. To do it right not just wing it. U have to get the feeling that the song was meant to have from the person who wrote it. IF that makes any sense. If u know the music rythem like the back of ur hand then it will be easier not easy. Try songs youve heard for a long time. Practice it over and over. Or try 1 verse and the chorus till you get it perfect. THen work on the rest of the song. Good luck
