The Google Guitar Doodle Honors Rock Legend Les Paul

Google is honoring what would have been the 96th birthday of Les Paul with the Google guitar doodle. The Google guitar doodle morphs the company's logo into a guitar that you can actually play using your mouse or keyboard.

The tune you create can be recorded and sent to your friends via a link Google provides. While I have never dared to disgrace a guitar with my untrained fingers, I still had fun fiddling around with the Google guitar doodle. Les Paul was one of the driving forces behind the creation of the electric guitar and has been called an "architect" of rock music by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Even if you aren't a fan of rock music, you could still pay your respects to a musical legend and play a tune or two on the Google guitar doodle today.
