Meryl Streep’s guitar blues for upcoming film ‘Ricki and the Flash’

Meryl Streep's guitar blues for upcoming film 'Ricki and the Flash' Meryl Streep's guitar blues for upcoming film 'Ricki and the Flash'Three time Oscar-winner Meryl Streep, known for her multiple talents, found it challenging to play a guitar player in a band for her upcoming film “Ricki and the Flash”.

Directed by Jonathan Demme, “Ricki and the Flash” is loaded with music and live performance where Streep stars as Ricki, a guitar heroine who gave up everything for her dream of rock-and-roll stardom, but is now returning home to make things right with her family.

“I knew a D chord in college, D, G, E and A. That’s all you need! No, I had to learn bar chords – that’s the real thing – and the blues, all that stuff,” Streep said in a statement.

She added that she was relieved to know that her character in the film is not supposed to be a guitar legend.

Streep said: “Absolutely. There is more forgiveness in the fact that my character is supposed to be mediocre. But Kevin (Kline – who plays her former husband in the film) is a very talented musician himself. He did come up to me on the first day when we playing in the club, and he said, ‘You don’t sound bad.’ I thought, ‘Thank you.’ That was the highest compliment. He meant that we sounded good. At least, that’s how I took it – as a compliment.”

Streep stars opposite her real-life daughter Mamie Gummer, who plays her fictional daughter, Rick Springfield, who takes on the role of a Flash member in love with Ricki and Kevin Kline, who portrays Ricki’s long-suffering former husband.

“Ricki and the Flash” will release in India on August 28.
