If I'm not singing, my playing suffers.

Tickle the ivories? Here's the place to talk about it.

If I'm not singing, my playing suffers.

Last night I allowed a couple of ringers to take over singing for a few songs. It's not the first time, but I'm always a little surprised at how much this seems to affect my playing. It's almost like I lose interest a little bit - even during the improvisation.

Perhaps I just need to be the center-of-attention - otherwise I sulk a little bit. Or perhaps I don't want to take the spotlight away from their time in the Sun. I don't know, but I swear that as soon as my guest vocalist(s) sit back down, my playing improves 3-fold.

That's interesting, it's the opposite for me. I sometimes have a tough time coordinating both at the same time I guess.

I experience the opposite thing. Whenever I sing I have the tendency to stop and get totally lost ... :mrgreen:
