You’re never too young to be a rock and roller!
Gwyneth Paltrow shared a video on her Instagram Monday night of her (uber-friendly) “consciously uncoupled” ex-husband Chris Martin giving guitar lessons to their 13-year-old daughter, Apple. The Coldplay frontman offered pointers on the Beatles’ classic, “Blackbird” — a tricky fingerpicking ballad. Not bad for a beginner!
Martin sang along to the melody, using his multi-platinum voice to issue fretboard instructions.
“Guitar time 🍎,” Paltrow captioned the sweet clip.
Martin, like most people with ears, is a big Beatles fan. During his set at a private benefit show in 2016, he performed a stirring rendition of Paul McCartney‘s “Yesterday,” which has earned the distinction of being the most covered song on record.
“Happy birthday my brother. Thank you for giving me these two,” she captioned the post along with a heart emoji.

“He’s really like my brother. We’re very familial,” she told Colbert about Martin, who’s now dating actress Dakota Johnson. “It’s nice, it’s great. Divorce is terrible, it was very painful, it was really hard. We really genuinely wanted our kids to be as unscathed as possible.”
