Singing Bass Players

Post  Alex31 on Mon Jun 14, 2010 2:10 am

I can sing and play the bass.. Just not at the same time.. Sad

Anyways I was wondering if anyone can do both. I can play the guitar and sing but for some reason I can do it with the bass. Why is it harder or do I just need more practice on it?

Also how many lead singers do you know that can do both in bands? I know that the lead singer from Skillet plays the bass but I've never seen him in concert Sad

We have a topic about this.

Also it seems like playing guitar and singing may be easier then singing and playing bass.
My current teacher is the vocalist and guitarist in his band, he's tried and he finds it hard to sing and play bass.

I can sing, i just don't sound very good, but i can sing and play bass. Wink

Well, with a guitar...
It's relatively easy to sing and whack chords than sing and play riffs.
I guess playing bass is mostly playing riffs...

There are quite a lot of singing Bass players, Jack Bruce in Cream, Sting in The Police, Geddy Lee so It probably won't be harder then playing Guitar and singing.

Okay cool, thanks guys!

Right now I'm at the point where I either sing and sound like a little kid messing around with a Bass, or play the Bass and mumble my way through a song Sad

Anywayz thanks for the link Black Dragon!
