As the title implies, is there anyone with a good tip or advice on the subject? smile.gif
I used to be utterly crap at singing and playing at the same time, but just trying over and over helped me out a lot. My challenge now is if I`m not even able to sing for one second without losing the rhythm, even though the rhythm is really simple to play, I don`t know how to practice it blink.gif

For reference, the song I`m trying to play and support backing vocals to is Kool and the Gang - Celebration, while playing bass tongue.gif
...I also struggle a lot more when playing bass then guitar. As if I feel more of a responsibility for being tight. Does anyone feel the same?

It is the part starting at 1:06 (where you hear the backing vocals). I play bass guitar for this song, but the rhythm is the same

One part has to be ingrained into your subconscious.
Another thing that helps is to attach certain strong beats to the syllables to help you anchor the rhythm. So slow it down and work out what your right hand is doing at each point of the word celebrate and get it down cold with repetition, slowly speeding it up to 100%
