I've begun singing while playing. I started playing songs the typical "folk" strum. (D DU UDU) Now that I'm pretty good at singing while playing this, it's very hard for me to sing w/ a different strumming pattern. Such as Floyd's Wish you were here. Any tips on maybe timing or ways to practice this? I feel w/ my current practice I'm ingraining the wrong way to do it. Thanks.
practice the pattern first until you can do it withouth thinking about it then add the singing
Take the D DU UDU strum and make small changes to it, like add an up... Like, DU DU UDU.... Small changes over a long period of time and you won't even notice the pattern.
