Our band jammed last night and there were some rough spot still it was fun. Later I said don't worry perfection is the death of creativity. Watching this video I'm thinking we had no fans,no awards,no money but we probably had more fun. At least we heard each other and not some stinking click track. My ears are still ringing. I couldn't hear over my cranked Marshall. If I was off a bit who cares? It's live,organic,unfiltered pure juice. Not available in stores.

Hi Rick, I’m a french jazz musician, essentially performing as a sideman in Bireli Lagrenes bands, who I’m sur you’ve heard about as a guitarist, for almost 15 years, among my own, more intimate, projects. I watched some of your videos and I really like the way you are teaching and talking about music and the evolution of it. I would like to add a remark about the place of musicians, especially in TV shows. My position on playback is simple : it is not good for the artists, nor for the technicians, nor for the public. Bruno Mars' performance at the Grammys is, as you say, amazing. I watched it three times to try to understand if they are singing live. Either way, it's incredible. If it is live, such accuracy and precision in the voices is epic. If it's playback, the lip sync is a feat. What I regret is that they didn't come with the band, maybe because of the restrictions due to the pandemic, but still... How to make children want to play a musical instrument if we see less and less musicians on TV, or even on stage. I remember a Beyonce and Jay Z stadium tour, with 14 dancers and a soundtrack, certainly recorded by musicians especially for this tour, but without musicians on stage. It can’t be a question of budget, because when you sell 50-80000 tickets per concert, you can easily hire a band. I'm afraid that what already happened to studio musicians will happen to live musicians if we don't denounce this kind of practice, especially coming from mega-stars reaching so many young people around the world. Anyway, thanks for offering so much quality content on your KGglobal channel. Hoping this (too) long comment will reach you. Cheers. Franck

There's a lot of reasons people lip sync besides complicated dance numbers. Singers get sick, their voices get worn out night after night, obviously many need backing tracks because they can't double or quadruple their own voice live. During coronavirus, people aren't performing as much, so probably more of them have actually missed performing and haven't been stressing their voices night after night. Probably a treat to perform live.

You can definitely dance and sing at the same time. People who seriously study voice often do intensive exercises while they are working on their technique because exercise engages extrinsic muscles in a way that separates them from the vocal production itself. With that said, it is very difficult to do if you haven't practiced singing and dancing at the same time. So you are essentially correct, but what I said is still something to keep in mind. Acts like Ariana Grande and PLENTY of K-Pop singers do it all the time without lip-syncing/live pitch correction, and a lot of them sound STELLAR.
B Harp43

@anony mous Also, my original point in this thread was about singing and dancing at the same time, which is completely possible. You must not agree, which is strange, because plenty of voice teachers and singers on broadway train to sing well while running, doing cardio, etc. There are accounts of operatic sopranos doing cartwheels on stage while singing high D naturals. If the breath is in the right place, and if the larynx and vocals folds are completely free of tension, you can sing in any position you want, and you can sing doing many different movements. If you don't believe me, you haven't done enough research.

@anony mous Just because they let their record labels push them around, and just because their studio recordings are highly manufactured, doesn't mean they aren't good singers and performers. You obviously haven't checked them out, or you would know some of them do perform live. Just because you dislike the music, doesn't mean it isn't music, and it doesn't mean they aren't good singers or musicians. I know he isn't a k-pop musician, but the same thing applies to someone like Charlie Puth. Charlie Puth's music is highly manufactured and filled with pitch correction, but that doesn't mean he can't perform live, sing live, play piano very well, or compose complex music. "Bye"

@B Harp43 haha musicians in kpop? Lol. I could agree that there are real musicians in Korea but there no artist/musicians in kpop. That's it. Kpop is just a product manufactured by their companies for you guys to consume. Ive checked out kpop as everyone was goin crazy abt it but it's pure trash. Kpop is basically famous bcuz of not music but bcuz of one and only looks.

RHCP live at Slane Castle! I’m sure there’s some dubbing (vocals, likely?) but the guitar sound is beautiful, and done by messing with pedals and tone knobs on Frusciante’s guitars. It’s a bit inexact sometimes, and that adds to the charm. Guy never plays the same solo twice.

Heck, even Miku's concert events have live musicians, playing accompaniment for the software singer. :P Get WITH it, Grammy Awards. If you're not going to have live musicians playing their music live on the program, then why not just show their MTV videos or just play their CDs with pretty pictures on the screen?

@B Harp43 There are more adults than minors in almost every country in the west Example America has around 250 million adults and 100 million minors. Now on an average a large amount of these adults say above 90% supposedly boomers gen X are not listening to mainstream music or music in general as they grew up with Rock metal.Their older bands are not releasing anything substantial and their older music has been played to death. Millennials have different tastes as some of them grew up with nu metal some with rap music some with pop and some who are very busy with family job business don't listen to music The large amount of audience comes from minors below 25-20 the gen z group especially girls. That's why you will see a lot of female audience at Justin Bieber one direction BTS Taylor Swift concerts And I would honestly say it's not about accessibility it's about wanting or not wanting to listen to music

What you also see a lot these days is these ‘live’ performances, where a band/artist plays live, but the performance is mixed/edited so extensively, it’s almost like a record. For example check out the tiny desk concerts by Justin Bieber and Dua lipa, which are obviously pitch corrected and so polished.. You can hardly call it live anymore. And all these kids thinking OMG justin can really sing.. hmm well that remains to be seen

Rick - i am in the UK so never saw the Grammys, but see you mentioned Bruno Mars. I have only today heard his new track with Anderson Paak and they will play as a band Silk Sonic. "Leave the door open" maybe the best pop song I have heard for ages. It will be great to see your thoughts on it. It seems to attract a lot of response and is definitely a baby-maker in the mold of classic erection section soul.

The Grammys do retain an important role in the commercial music world. But when so few people are interested in (much less captivated by) what passes for popular music of late, and considering the fact that even teens today are showing a lasting consistent preference for the music from the last century it is quite telling. It tells us that although people may have subjective reasons for liking one music genre over another, the fact remains that the “goodness” or “badness” of music is fully OBJECTIVE. It’s something almost innate. Regardless of genre, people tend to know a good song when they hear one. And we haven’t been hearing _good_ music for a long time.

@Torquemonster440 pop is a watered down genre which sounds attractive to ears and becomes sterile to ears over a period of time for the same reasons.if you listen to any modern pop song they will have a very catchy chorus and pre chorus but the rest of the song is trash.The song lasts as long as people remember that chorus pre chorus.Thats why Most Rock metal fans despise pop music which is very much justified.Personally I like nu metal (Linkin park Evanescence my chemical romance) I only listen to pop only because of Bruno Adele. Trap a watered down genre of rap music is destroying modern music.
Torquemonster440 18 күн мурун
@Shashwat mishra Absolutely, i actually love Bruno Mars.. he's one of the few modern entertainers out there with style and talent.. only a select few tho.. Bruno, Adele.. etc.. I'm actually a huge pop fan, I grew up a fan of Michael Jackson. But theres a difference between something thats produced to be "pop" vs great music that just happens to appel to the masses. I think what turns me off to most current pop is that there is an overly refined and sterile feel to it. Popular music moves in cycles.. for those to young to remember , America suffered through a similar period during the 80's.. Poision, Ratt.. Duran Duran.. Warrant.. George Michael.. all of these "artists" spawned the backlash that was classified as "Grunge ". Which was basically stripped down raw emotional music crafted with purpose and feeling. It's priority was not to sell the most hit singles, but it did because it resonated with the masses.

So on the topic of click tracks in In-Ear monitors, it can be done and still have it be live. My band, our drummer is on a click and we play to him. It really just depends on the caliber of musicians in the band. We dont play the same set the same way twice. We listen to each other and play off of each other and still play to a click. Ive seen bands to a backtrack and be incredible so it really just depends on the musicians and bands rather than the music.

Tone is in the fingers. The player is still more important than the tech. There’s is nothing wrong with having great tech. There is plenty of amazing new music out there. All genres. We must resist the “everything was better in my day” mentality. If you choose to use it to make something that sounds over produced and fake that is a choice but lots of amazing music is getting made right now. The top songs of Spotify are the tip of a very large iceberg.

My band and I just recorded our first full-length album. I'm the singer and I refused to use autotune on my voice. I mentioned this on a Facebook post on a rock music page and got roasted by other musicians/fans for it. I get that for young artists like me who don't have money for extra studio time, it's easier and quicker to touch up vocals that way instead of doing more takes and edits to get it right. But idk, I still like being able to hear the differences and small imperfections in music, especially with vocals, it gives music more personality. People are complacent to autotune and all of the other digital aspects that have taken over music. And lipsyncing or using autotune live to me completely defeats the purpose of live music.

Are you equivocating auto-tune with pitch correction? Both are correcting pitch, but I think correcting just the notes that are bad, is okay. Auto-tune is correcting everything, so in my opinion, the singer doesn't have to make an effort to be accurate. For what it's worth, that's my 2 cents.

Ghost performing their song, “He Is.” Probably not a chance in Hell(Pun intended)of a song that blatantly praises Satan being performed on the American Grammy’s.

Bruno is one of the most unbelievable performers on earth at this point in time. Always kills at big live TV and Awards shows. And we set up audience mics always when we use in-ears. Way too isolated otherwise. Will probably have some vocal FX in their ears but not necessarily the ones we hear from FOH Haha. Unfortunately with backing tracks, usually from QLAB, it relies on someone pushing go at the right time :) And I’m old :) but you have to appreciate talent, no matter the Genre. Big respect to Billy and Harry. They have “got” whatever it is.

The Who used to use "tracks" in the '70s because they had no choice. They couldn't bring a huge ARP synthesizer with them for "Baba O'Reilly" or "Won't Get Fooled Again." Or all the horns for QUADROPHENIA. Everything else was live, of course -- and the Who, with Keith Moon, were the most exciting live rock band ever (this is not up for debate!).

I kinda got the impression that with covid, for a lot of these remote streamed performances... Yeah, vocals might be live, but they also have the advantage of pre-recording a whole performance so the vocal track can be polished up for a live broadcast, make it sit better in a mix, do a bit of pitch correction here and there, iron out any imperfections. In this case you wouldn't say they're lip-syncing because it 'was' live when they sang it, but it doesn't rule out the possibility that it went through some manipulation before reaching the listener's ear. I could be wrong though.

i tried to watch..but every year it gets harder and harder. I want to like new bands/artist..but there just isn't too much that makes me want to listen to them instead of something already around doing it better for longer. That being said it is funny how in my lifetime lip syncing went from taboo to the norm.

I don't know why everyone makes a big deal about a performer lip syncing their own music. Anyone who's old enough will remember almost every act that appeared on "American Bandstand" or "The Ed Sullivan Show" lip synched. In fact there was an appearance by The Grateful Dead where Phil Lesh was so pissed off about being forced to lip synch he performed on stage playing a broom stick instead of his bass.

You can absolutely vamp on tracks if you use software such as Ableton Live to run the tracks. With Ableton you can create sections that are mapped to midi keys and controlled by a drummer, a keyboardist, or a midi footswitch. By doing this, you can sit on a vamp section for 16, 24, 32 bars or more by simply selecting that section to play multiple times. I was doing that in church almost 20 years ago.

16:00 "So that people that follow them around are going to get different performances" 🤔 That's definitely not why setlists are changed from show to show. It's not to cater to the people that follow them around. Those people are the minority. You cater to the bulk of your audience, not the few that follow a tour. Some bands and artists change a lot earlier on tour just because they're feeling it out and depending on crowd reactions they'll move things around for a better show . Other artists just want to keep it fresh and avoid the monotony of repeating the exact same setlist night after night. Some artists play different sets because they want to encourage people to go to more than one show to sell more tickets. But they usually market that and talk about it. Otherwise you'd have no idea and assume the setlist is the same at each show, and maybe not go to the next one. But I can assure you that bands aren't changing a couple songs in the setlist just to make the few people that follow the tour happy, while not playing the songs the rest of the 98% of the crowd want to hear on the single night they're there.

More pampered celebrity "recording artist" BS! They don't have to sing that well, or at all. "We can fix it in post." They don't have to write their own music, that's what composers are paid for. They don't have to make any real effort, that's what publicists, mangers, or assistants are for. And, anymore they don't even need to warm up their voices for a show because who sings their own songs?! I get it, its art and sometimes its really difficult or even impossible to reproduce live. But, nobody would accept a guitar player using a recording at a show by acting as if he were playing the part! A back-up track is one thing. Trying to fraud the audience is something else! Many of us aren't there to worship celebrity, we are there for a music performance...

It was a fake live for most of all: they recorded a fake live vocal tracks in studio, you can hear it very well. Obviously they are super talented artists, it was a (sad) production choice, I don't think people like Bruno Mars want lip sync, he is such a beast.

Another reason why I love the band U2. They don’t play to a click or backtrack and the singer doesn’t lip sync. In almost any song, the lead singer Bono might decide to start interacting with audience-and the band will just be vamping along, following Bono’s live cues. Or Bono may begin mashing in lyrics from other performers’ songs. Or drummer Larry Mullen Jr might speed up or slow down the tempo. Or the band may start playing really soft as Bono gets the crowd going in a song-along-the length of which depends on the audience & the energy of the moment. Bono has leeway to REALLY go off script if he wants because everything’s live. U2 are *masters* at audience engagement and responding to the moment. They just have no fear about letting it all be real. Epic live band.

I lost all respect for the Grammy's in 1981 when they gave the award for Best Rock Instrumental to a forgettable song by some reggae-pop rock band instead of YYZ by Rush. What the hell were they thinking, ffs

Y'know, putting on any kind of awards show during a pandemic is a logistical challenge of epic proportions. I think this one came off great, even though most of the performers and nominees are not in my playlist. My daughter manages and produced the Black Pumas performance, who I love, and that was genuine and authentic and fun, and not at all easy to get right. Kudos to the Grammys for getting it right. Yeah they're an industry show, and sorry I don't listen to most of those acts, and yeah there are a lot of haters, but that show was pretty well done. Btw, Ringo looked great and is still my favorite surviving Beatle.
