I wasn’t recording in the 70’s or 80’s, but unless a sequencer was being used, I would wager that it’s called being a good player.

I have worked with more than a few drummers who can play to a click and it pretty much sounds perfect. Same goes for keys and bass. I try not to brag much but I have played guitar for 25 years and my rhythm is impeccable.

Pro players can usually nail it in about 3 takes, especially if they’ve heard the song before or rehearsed it with a band who uses a metronome.

I agree with the statement above that the advent of easy editing in the digital realm, along with all the other distractions created by the internet have resulted in a lot of mediocre musicians.

Speaking of which, I feel convicted - I’m going to sign off now and go play some guitar.
