    i too have trouble with this. i found it's easier if you write your own bass part, and make it go along with the rythm of the words. this is all i could find to help me, it makes it a lot easier. i'm pathetic when it comes to this, i can't even play blink 182 songs and sing them at the same time, but when i write my own parts that fallow the words more, it gets easier.
  5. I have trouble with this, too. I find repetition helps so I practice my parts to death. Yeah, I feel kinda weird belting it out by myself in my basement but I've got to do it to get better. When I'm at my best I'm very relaxed and am not thinking very much about either playing or singing. In order to do that I have to know both parts in my sleep and repetition is how I get there. Good luck and let us know if you find something that helps.
