Re: Music Videos
Some videos actually do have cables and or wireless systems attached to guitars. However, by and large, when shooting a video the last thing you need are cables running wildly to have a chance to get caught on something and ruin what would otherwise be an expensive moment. They are an unnecessary extra to the shot. Also a cable could distract the viewers eye from what the director wants you to focus on. The bottom line is the directors vision either includes them or it doesn't. It's not about what the band wants, or feels their song is about (for the most part, although I'm sure there is a small percentage of exception). Same reason a magician does something spectacular with his right hand to avoid you seeing what his left hand does.
