This are a result of the survey done by one of the leading guitar site. One of the key skills you need to learn is sense of timing which is evident in both “Rhythmic Strumming” and “Singing and Playing”. When people start to sing along while playing guitar, their strumming suffers. This is mostly because we loose track of timing while singing, even though strumming is correct. In this post, I will give you two tools to improve your sense of timing. When listening to songs pay careful attention to the beats, and duration of gaps between lyrics.
When practicing chords and chord sequence always keep the metronome running so that you strike the string at the right time. Once you feel comfortable with the sequence and you can accurately play the chords, slowly increase the tempo.
With the beat sequencer you can readily combine to create the beats similar to the song. Now first only sing without playing guitar, so that your singing has correct timing. In the second step, only strum the guitar and humming the song in your mind. This will make it easier to play and sing with the correct timing.
I have an excellent tutorial on guitar tuning. If it would be helpful, let me know. I will do a post on guitar tuning.
I always look forward to your feedback and insights. So Talk back to me….
