I'm not sure if this is the right place, but theres usually other **** in the pit, but how do you do the phenomenon of play guitar and sing at the same time?
Does the pit have any advice for a willing learner?(me) I don't have a great singing voice, but I still want to know how to do this... do you have any little tips or songs to do to try and get better at this?

please pit, help!

Learn the guitar part first, then start by whispering or humming the lyrics. Slowly work up to singing quietly, then get louder.

I sing and play in my band.

What I do is learn either the guitar or vocal part so I can do it in my sleep, then focus on the other one while you do the other one easily.

I started playing bass and singing and it just came naturely to me. Of course at first either my bass or my voice would suffer under the combination but i don't think i have that problem anymore.=)

Winner winner chicken dinner.

Try and know the guitar well enough so you don't have to think much about where your fingers are.

Start with songs that have simple rhythms. Personally, I found it very easy to play and sing songs that were off beat.
Here's what the critics are saying about Hanzi_G:

do songs where the vocal melody matches the guitar melody, like iron man, paint it black etc
then work your way up to songs with easy guitar and vocal parts like sunshine of your love and paranoid

2)make obvious punk puns, possibly related to food
3)make fun of Rancid and NOFX again

It's best to start off with songs that have a singing guitar player, like some Pink Floyd, Nirvana, Green Day, or Rush. Possibly even the rhythm guitar of Metallica, depending on your skill level.

I don't pay attention to what i play when i sing and play guitar. I concentrate on singing and don't focus on what i'm playing.
If Rock is a life-style, then Metal's an addiction

do songs like blink green day or off spring where their singer plays guitar and normal just 4 powerchords play 4,6 or 8 times each

what ure saying about the second nature rythm think does make sense.. thats what I did for my gcse compostion.. I played the guitar part so many time that i could sing over it, but the words were right in front of me.. but i will take the points in to consideration, when i can be arsed to practise

I think Geddy sings in rush and good luck doing his basslines.
