Watch: Cara Delevingne plays guitar behind her head

Model/actress played Sweet Home Alabama unconventionally.

Cara Delevingne is an artist of many talents: modelling, acting, singing and drumming, just to name a few. But it turns out that she’s also a competent guitarist, as evidenced by her surprising performance on a recent episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

In the clip, Fallon chats with Delevingne about her hidden talents before pressing her on her ability to play the guitar behind her head. The talk show host then hands an axe to Delevingne, who lifts the instrument behind her head before playing the intro from Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Sweet Home Alabama.

“I always think with musical instruments, it’s always fun to play them how other people don’t,” Delevingne said prior to her six-string demo. “Because you get taught how to do things and I like to do them unconventionally.”
