Jimmy Fallon kicked things off by playing “Isn’t She Lovely” on the slide whistle, while Maggie Gyllenhaal gave a rousing rendition of “Sweet Home Alabama” on a lap steel guitar.

The pair both failed to get a correct guess from The Roots.

Jimmy scored a win by performing “Amazing Grace” on a dulcimer, before Maggie tried her hand at “My Heart Will Go On” with a washtub bass.

They then collaborated on a joint effort at the end, performing “Over The Rainbow” on Irish lyre harp (Jimmy) and a sousaphone (Maggie), which the band managed the guess!

Check out the full clip down below.

Maggie recently revealed what it was like directing her husband Peter Sarsgaard‘s sex scenes in her new movie.
