When a legendary actress like Meryl Streep wants a guitar lesson, she obviously recruits an iconic rock star.
While preparing for her latest role as a 66 year old rock star mother in Ricki and the Flash , Meryl Streep wanted to make her guitar playing look authentic. To get some axe-shredding pointers, she enlisted help from one of the greatest guitarists of all time, Canadian rock god Neil Young.
Prior to shooting the film, Streep met up with Young for a one on one guitar lesson at the Jacob Burns Film Center in New York.
Both Streep and Young took turns rocking out on a sweet black Fender Stratocaster, and thankfully the magical moment was caught on camera.
Watch the epic footage from the lesson below. Even Meryl was in awe of Mr. Young’s skills. And who wouldn’t be?
