Hey man I have to agree that singing and playing is very challenging, but my technique is just keep with it and eventually you'll be able to do both without a problem. oh yea and i saw that you're from delaware? i'm actually stationed at Dover AFB, I just thought it was cool....small world

I can sing the Star Spangled Banner and hit the last high notes in tune. And I can prove it (recorded it and sent it to my bother as a joke last 4th of July). Also used to be able put both of my feet behind my head, have not tried that for awhile.

The USA is one of the few countries that has a old drinking song as the tune for its nation anthem, I am pretty proud of that.

EDIT: after saying that, I went down to the kitchen and sang it. When I was done, 7 of my 8 cats had surrounded me, making noises, and looking real agitated (the other cat was outside). However, I do hit it in precisely in tune, even the last note (actually the high note just before the end is harder to hit). The cats just don't appreciate it.


ALTERNATE strategy #2:

Just stick to guitar and find someone like this to join your band.

I have asked this question a few times in the past lol. Im afread there is no short cut or easy lesson to this.
you just have to practice the song till you can play it in your sleep, then learn the words and practice again like mad till you can do the two together.
I found that with songs you already know well (for me oasis wonderwall was my first) it becomes a bit easier. I also found that playing and singing with the original song in the backround helps heaps and heaps.

I can do either playing or singing usually. not both lol if i sing then i usually cannot concentrate on my fingering enough to get teh timing right.
My advice is pick a real simple song with just a few chords , learn the strum & song. It will build your confidence once you have a few tracks under your belt. Its just Bloody hard work and practice.

oh and did i say PRACTICE lol

I'd say start with an easy song that you know like the back of your hand and try singing along to that. something like "Polly" from Nirvana, which is VERY simple acoustic song.

What did you learn tonight?
while shouting so loud, you barely joyous, broken thing.
You are a voice that never sings, is what i say.
You are freezing over hell
You are bringing on that end you do so well
and you can only blame yourself, is what is say.
