Im not particularly fond of my voice but over time and much glass shattering effort its getting better. I cant sing while I play anyways, however there are a ton of songs that I would like to record or perform except i dont think i can count on a vocalist to be familiar with all the slight vocal mannerism of all the music I have listened to. If they dont even know the song, how can I expect yhem to adequately sing it with great feeling or lyrical and chordal accuracy? How do you feel about singing? How about singing while you play? Any tips for that? Its my understanding that not eveyone can play at a highly articulate level while singing at an equally articulate level. Some can, Jimi for example was excellent at this as well as many of the great old bluesmen. Do you have any favorites that sing and play very well at the same time?
