singing and playing


Well folks I did it I crossed into a new area.
Singing while I play the drums.

Its a little diffrent but not as bad as I thought it might be.

It is kinda hard to think about the lyrics and trying to play the rythum all at the same time but Im slowly getting used to it.

Anyone else sing and play give me some tips.

It's really a tough task but with practice anything is possible. I feel like when I sing and play at the same time, I can't do as many complicated fills that I have to focus on. Make sure you know the drum part solid and build the singing melody off of that.

no I dont I just have a mike on a stand.

But I get to sing what I got by sublime and I guess everyone likes it, even my girlfreind and she thinks that my singing sucks on most songs.

But at least I can do it.

I like that song a lot.. the drum part isn't too complicated right?

well I'd prefer sticking with one thing, but if you can multitask and you got a nice voice then by all means, go for it

i always thought singing drummers were cool

Havent tried singing and playing drums at the same time. One day I might, but yeah. My singing voice sucks. Badly. Like a vacuum. Or a black hole. I mean seriously, it sucks.

Yea I have to find songs that fit my voice. I kinda have a hi pitch voice.

I was like that to though I sucked and then I went to japan for a few years and we sang karioki all the time and I got a lot better at it so I guess thats one way to practice.

I think drumming and singing would be a lot easier than singing and dancing at the same time. I did it for a talent show type thing and it was pretty hard once you started to sweat and you lost your breath causing you to huff and puff. Also it's pretty hard to synchronize the song you're singing with some of the more complicated dance steps. I should quit smoking as well..

Its not that its all that hard to do it is just when you have to try and play a very complicated rythum and then on top of that try singing or if the drums are much faster than the words coming out of your mouth that can create a timming issue.

But Im sure siging and dancing is hard as well that why you have to work out like the marines. run and sing a cadince as loud as you can.
helps build up your lungs.
