i have real trouble singing and playing at the same time, i can do it but i tend to completely loose the rhythm when strumming...anyone had the same problem?
fixable with practice? if so..whats a good way to practice?
#2
with me it just came with experiance.
also i started playing very slowly and tried to work out which words go over each chords and then just practiced slowly

practice. you need to know the guitar part first... without having to think at all. once you can do this hard songs become easy to sing over.. but if you try songs you just learnt that have a hard rhythm it might take a while.

depends on the rhythm of the song some are really easy.

just keep practicing.

Hey Man,

I dunno about if your writting your own songs, but if your playing an old song, try playing and singing with the song playing on a cd player or somethin,
thats what helped me.

I too had your problem. My two cents says " Play the song slow as you can while sing the words to that speed. Each time your gonna wanna bump the tempo up a tad more each time. its very boring and frustrating but it will get you past this trouble. it helped me.
