Meryl Streep's guitar blues.

Mumbai, Aug 20 (IANS) 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.
