Yes! I finally found someone for whom the F chord is as irritating to play as it is for me. I will, occasionally, submit to playing a modified F (Umm, Fmaj7 I believe... xx3210 for tab players), but aside from that, DOOM on the F chord in general. :)
I'm OK with the F chord as long as I don't have to get to it too quickly. :-) It most commonly seems to get paired with C chords, so I've been practicing that transation, F to C to F. Slowly it improves. But I still have no sense of timing.
The difficult bit for me, in the Rise Up Singing songbook, is when we were trying to pair the words with the chords, and I didn't know the words well enough, so I was looking at chords, fingers, AND lyrics. Too many places I need to put my eyes!

Yeah, I certainly do much better when I know the tune well enough that I don't have to look at the lyrics... although, my own innate lack of rhythm (had to respell that about 12 times) makes singing along while I play ... umm... interesting, to say the least.
