I know that musical performances depicted in film/TV are often fake to one extent or another; even if a real musician is featured; lip synching makes sense where multiple takes are involved.

But few things annoy me more than a scene with a band where the person playing guitar has clearly never held one before in their life, doing some weird approximation of strumming with bad rhythm, it looks fake and it's bad and it ruins entire films for me

True -
Even were they complete non-musicions, they could spend time learning to fake it correctly. It's part of being in character.
