She's a classically trained singer, Master's in Music, etc., etc. She told me that any musician can do both if one of the things can be done without thought. So it would make sense that YOUNG musicians haven't mastered the skill of playing guitar without thinking about it. And once they master the guitar, they are able to do both. But what do I know!!!!

Anyways, I always marvel at people like Neil Young who can play guitar, sing, and add in a harmonica. Amazing how the brain can work.
IMO, playing bass and singing is definitely more difficult to do than playing guitar and singing(although it actually depends on the difficulty of the bass part vs the singing part).
