Coldplay’s Chris Martin Teaches Wife Gwyneth Paltrow to Play Guitar

1 Comment

When it comes to playing guitar, I’ll do whatever it takes to learn.  I have taken private lessons.  I have used DVD’s.  I have asked for tips from players on YouTube.  I regularly look for new content on Fretbase’s song pages.  And I have bought many, many books with good lessons.  So you can imagine that it is hard for me to understand how it took Gwyneth Paltrow 6 years after marriage to get guitar lessons from her husband – Coldplay front man and guitarist Chris Martin.  But that’s what it took.

In a recent interview in Harper’s Bazaar, Paltrow explained that her husband Chris Martin taught her how to play guitar for her upcoming movie “Love Don’t Let Me Down.” We wonder if he let her use the Gibson or the Rickenbacker.

If I was married to Patty Griffin, the lessons would have started on our first date.  A man can dream…
