* Robert Palmer's "Addicted to Love". Some people criticized the video because the "musicians" (portrayed by fashion models) were not correctly playing their guitars. VH1's ''Series/PopUpVideo'' said that a musician was hired to teach the models basic guitar fingering techniques, but "gave up after about an hour and left".

** Apparently Yōkinshi can play a ''guqin'' standing, holdinh it in one arm while playing with his free hand. [[JustifiedTrope You can't really blame the guy]], [[MusicalAssassin because he fights with the stuff]]. He [[AvertedTrope plays it properly]] when given the chance to sit down.

* ''[[VideoGame/{{Onmyoji}} Onmyōji]]'': Mōba plays a heavily stylized ''shamisen'' ([[ArtisticLicenseHistory which didn't exist during the time period the game is set in]])) by plucking at the strings by hand.

* Music/ScatmanJohn's "Scatman" video has a trumpeter, upright bassist and drummer in it, when all of the instruments are obviously synthesized.
* And in the video for The Bellamy Brothers' "Old Hippie (The Sequel)", one of them is strumming a resonator guitar in the video. This is doubly wrong; besides the complete lack of said instrument in the song, resonator guitars are usually played horizontally (like a lap steel guitar) or finger-picked, not strummed.

** Though the more ridiculous thing is that there is some sort of magic computer program that can perfectly transcribe what you're playing as you're playing it. No such program exists, or at least, it's not even close to accurate.

So, you're watching this show where someone appears to be TheCastShowOff, then you notice that their hands aren't matching the notes at all. Sometimes, to the point where [[TheyJustDidntCare they didn't even try]]. Or, perhaps someone is talking about music and it turns out it's just musical TechnoBabble.

* ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' has this to the level where [[TheyJustDidntCare they]] ''[[TheyJustDidntCare obviously]]'' [[TheyJustDidntCare just did not care]]. There is nothing even remotely accurate about the way any of the characters play any musical instrument. But then, they weren't trying - RuleOfFunny is the single most important element of ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' shorts.

* In ''Series/CrazyExGirlfriend'', when Valencia strums guitar and sings "Women Gotta Stick Together", there's a straight Type 1: Gabrielle Ruiz's right arm keeps perfect time but her left-hand fingers hold the same chord shape throughout the song. Averted in Greg's song "What'll It Be", where even if Santino Fontana didn't play the opening piano break on the recording, he mimed it perfectly.

* A unique sort of Artistic License comes up in ''{{Film/UHF}}'', which threw in the music video for "Money for Nothing/Beverly Hillbillies*". Mark Knopfler of Music/DireStraits only allowed the parody on the condition that he would play the lead guitar. Weird Al's usual guitarist, Jim West, had worked hard on perfectly imitating Knopfler's original performance; Knopfler himself did not. This is why, unusually for a Weird Al parody, the guitar part sounds quite different from the original song, especially noticeable in the opening riff.
