Let’s face the facts. Singing and playing guitar is hard! It may come more naturally to some gifted individuals. But for most of us, it’s a bit of a battle at first!
In this beginner guitar lesson, I want to break down my 3 step system for you. Let me preface this by saying that I am not a singer. I am a guitarist who also sings. Singing does not come naturally to me, and therefore singing and playing did not come naturally to me!
My band needed background vocal harmonies. I needed to fill that job. So I developed a system to teach myself to sing and play!
This 3 step system is something that you are going to need to go through for the first few songs you attempt to sing and play. But after you have done this with maybe 3 or 4 songs, it starts to get a lot easier!
Here is my 3 step system in a nutshell.
1) the Guitar.
Get the guitar part so down that it requires very little thought (muscle memory!)
2) the Vocals.
Not necessarily the lyrics (because you can read them) but get the melody line down. This means the notes the singer is singing!
3) the Works.
After you have exercised step 1 and 2 for a while, start attempting to combine the two!
Like I said, this is the exact system I used with success. I have gone through this with a few individual students in the past as well. I have witnessed people that were really struggling with singing and playing actually start to sing and play their favourite songs!
