I have a problem singing and playing at the same time - specifically if the strumming pattern doesn't "fit" the words, I run into trouble. I have tried to get around this (and succeeded) by focusing ONLY on playing the song and nailing down the strumming before starting to add words. Only issues with this is that it takes way too long (I really have just about 1/2 hour maybe every day).
Unfortunately I am often just a single man show (if u can call it a show, that is !!), so I have to really sing (just playing doesn't work for the usual janta (ppl who are musicians on the other hand enjoy only instrumental as well).
Any tips from the maestros?
