I can play chords and I can sing, but I can’t do both at the same time. My guitar rhythm always ends up following the vocal rhythm. How do you learn to keep them separate?
It’s a matter of practice. Sooner or later your hands will learn to act mechanically and without you having to concentrate on them. That’s when it’ll become easy to sing, talk or think about something else while you keep playing. It’s just like when we’re babies, and at first it’s a huge effort to stand, crawl and finally walk. But eventually, after doing it many many many many many times, we learn to do it properly and at the same time we can talk, use a phone, etc.
