Google Doodle Honors Les Paul

Today’s Google Doodle honors the great musician Les Paul who would have turned 96 today. Shaped like a guitar fretboard, it actually plays guitar if you mouse over the strings.

Google visitors in the U.S. can click the black “compose” button to record a 30-second song. To record, play the strings, then click the black button again to get a link to your recording.

Les Paul was best known for inventing the solid-body electric guitar. To learn more about Les Paul, check out the Kindle books: 50 Years of the Gibson Les Paul; The Les Paul Guitar Book; and The Early Years of the Les Paul Legacy 1915-1963.
