: Hihi, B,
: I'm luckier than you in that no one ever asked me to sing.... coz I'm a female bassist in a metal band ;p Well, I read about singing + playing in Bass Player [Mar00], and here's what Sting said:
: .... it's not that easy to sing and play bass. ... I found I could learn to play and sing just about anything as long as I slowed it down to its constituent parts. You develop confidence when that works - and you can play something extremely complicated and sing against it as long as you start slowly and build up speed. ... I put the hours in practicing. I start at ten in the morning, break for lunch, and usually by then I've got what I'm working on down. ... for the tour I spent a good amount of hours getting my chops together so I could do both parts...
Thanks small white. If I could add an extra 3 or 4 hours to the standard 24 hour day, I would have it made! ha ha
: Good luck!
