I've found some tips for guitarists by the great Ron Thal (Bumblefoot) and I wanted to share one of them that It's not commonly discussed and that I totally agree:

Learn how to sing

“When you sing, you’re expressing things in your first language. By doing things musically in that way, it’ll help you express things in your second language with your guitar. You’ll start to phrase things as if you’re singing, and you'll come up with very simple, singable melodies.

“It’ll help your songwriting because you’ll be expressing things with not one, but two voices – your singing and your guitar playing. It’ll also help you become more dexterous musically and will allow you to multi-task – you’ll think about more than just your guitar playing. If you can sing and play, you’ll tell a more vivid and sophisticated story than if you were just painting with one color.

“You’re also much more employable. You can add harmonies to other people’s songs as well as your own. Everybody can sing – I really believe that. If you think you can't, maybe you’re trying to sing in a way that isn't right for you, so you have to find your own voice. Think about it: You have Bob Dylan and Pavarotti – neither one could do what the other does. But that’s OK, because they found their own highly distinctive voices. Just be a great storyteller in your own way. It’ll help your guitar playing and your overall music making.” from THIS ARTICLE.
