How to Play and Sing at the SAME TIME

Many people want the ability to play guitar and sing at the same time, but this can be tricky for many people. This isn’t going to be a singing lesson. This is a lesson about how to do two things at once.

The trick to doing two things at once is to make sure one of the things EASY. Automatic. Effortless. Then you think about the other thing you’re trying to do while the other is happening automatically.

For most people, the thing to make automatic is rhythm guitar playing, aka strumming chords in an easy pattern. Then you think about your singing; when to breathe, pitch, lyrics, etc. The song ‘Aint no sunshine’ is a great song to start on this journey as the guitar playing and singing are largely separate.
