Didn't know where to put this so here it goes. In my band we play mostly originals, but we throw in 2 or 3 covers each show. Some of the main covers we do is Can't Stop by RHCP, and take the power back by Rage. The problem comes with the fact that I'm the lead singer! I can sing and play at the same time but i am finding it incredibly difficult to stay on time while slapping and singing at the same time. So far what I've been doing is every time i get off is to stop, wait a bar, then come back in. Any of you guys have to slap n sing? I'm finding it to be a very fun and intense challenge! Really enjoying the challenge, especially playing and singing/rapping the RATM songs. Also finding that while i slap and sing I don't really breathe properly, causing me to be stuck at some parts with no air left haha. Any techniques you guys use to sing and play at the same time? So far I've been basically learning the bass part till it's second nature as I'm better at bass then i am at singing but with slapping it's been much harder to do that.
