    The Male Chorus asked me to sing and play this Sunday instead of just playing bass. I have never been good at singing while playing, but this looks like it will work. I know I am no great singer, but I am happy with my progress.

    it’s funny. when i was young and dumb i could be in front of any size crowd and sing while playing.
    as i progressed on bass i put all my focus on playing and, lately, can barely sing backup vocals.
    thanks for the inspiration!

    So cal
    That’s awesome I learned how to sing with my bass by anchoring keywords from the lyrics on key notes of my bass that way if I wasn’t at that note when I was singing that word I knew I was off laugh out loud just keep practicing singing while you’re playing and It’ll come easier and easier I used to be so impressed with people who could do that and now I can do it while playing fretless.
