    hey guys,

    i think I have asked a question similar to this a long while back but any ways......

    does any body have any tips on singing & playing, is it possible to learn to do this?? I can play a lot of stuff, but I just cant seem to sing to ANY song. I recently heard "Pea" by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and thought it was soooo funny, I learned the song in 30 seconds, but I just cant seem to sing along to the simple song?

    Does anybody have any tips, hints, or no any web sites that might help.

    Try this-

    > Try singing whatever song, as long as it's got a steady beat and playing along on your bass, imaginary or real.

    > Now, try the same thing ONLY this time try tapping your toe or heel in time with the beat. Does this help you keep your playing on the accents (sounds like what your problem might be)?

    If it helps, make sure you've got some nice looking shoes.
  3. well sometimes you just have to get a good feel for the song before you can sing it
    i sing most of our bands songs but sometimes it just doesnt work
