As we’ve reported here earlier, Meryl Streep took guitar lessons to prepare for her role as an aging rocker in her new film Ricki and the Flash.

What we didn’t know then was that Neil Young gave Streep her first lesson.

Streep told the story to Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show on August 3, remarking, “My first guitar lesson was 45 minutes with Neil!”

The elder statesman of rock also gave the three-time Academy Award–winning actress a little advice, which you can learn about in the video below.
