Coolest Google Doodle Ever? Les Paul Birthday Inspires Playable Digital Guitar

September 30, 2011 on 4:57 pm | In Guitar | 25 Comments


It’s the coolest Google doodle yet! If you’re not keeping track: Google regularly updates its logo to mark holidays and honor those in need of honoring by turning the letters and design into a piece of art.Alexander Chen of Google Labs says the latest doodle celebrates the father of the electric guitar, Les Paul, on what would have been his 96th birthday. It not only lets you play guitar tunes by mousing over the virtual strings, it lets you make a 30-second recording of your strums. So you can get in touch with your inner Les Paul, who won two Grammys and built his first guitar at age 9.
