Finally I can synchronize the strumming to the melody in my singing. It's taken me 2+ years of practicing 1 hour/week. I am glad I stuck to it, because I felt so discouraged and thought I would never "get it". Now the real fun begins in that I can play/sing any song I like!
good 4 you. i cant sing for shit. well other than death grunts
Great, now get to playing jon scaffer riffs and singing like Hansi and then we can form a band.
You shooting for a James Hetfield style? I don't know if there are any "styles" out there but James Hetfield sure does look badass playing the fast/heavy songs and singing at the same time.
now you have to learn to sing and play painkiller
yeah that's the killer.. playing a vocal melody with a slightly different rhythm to the guitar riff. when i was starting i found it easiest to really nail the riff first, so that i could play it without thinking about it.
