There are plenty of band performances on YouTube now. Do you ever use that to study how songs are played?
“Absolutely. More so with something like Nine Inch Nails, because some people have different arrangements. The arrangements that are played live can be very different to the way they were recorded, especially in terms of the drum parts. That’s something where I’ll think, ‘how was this done, how was this loop recreated?’
“With Paramore and other bands I’ve played with live, what YouTube is great for is seeing how these bands perform these songs live, and any transitions they may have come up with as part of their set.”
