They are done live..we each practice our parts, vocals/band, for typically 6-8 weeks. We get together the night before shooting the video and recording audio to rehearse. The next night we record, we take 3 passes at each song we are recording to choose the best of the bunch. In rare cases we have added BGV's because it just didn't make sense to have so many people involved in the recording process.Dale, are all these done live? I would have thought that they were pre-recorded then the video is shot but reading the write up on youtube for this would have me believe otherwise.
