hey well yeah i can play guitar at the same time as singing, as long as the guitar stroke patern is slowish or really fast and they have to be chords.

any tips for me (and others i suppose) on how to get really good at singing and playing single string notes at same time?

cheers guys
Nothing is going to help you other than practice. There's no magic way to get there faster. Just practice.

practice some easy songs first like nothing else matters from metallica
then if you get better change to some harder songs like fade to black
