I was actually a singer before I was a guitarist. I have been singing in various things since I was 9, musicals and choirs and stuff (I have a hard time living it down but it is true). I only started learning guitar only just before I turned 16. I wish I had found guitar earlier though, as I love it so much, but I am only just catching up with people who have been learning for longe. I love to play and sing, and though I love playing lead guitar, seeing as I haven't been playing for as long but I study my theory, I am quite a good rhythm guitarist (which I think is underrated, I don't just play powerchords) and so singing is easier for me. I'd hate to on;y do one of the two, and I don't know which I would give up if I couldn't do both.
