The Les Paul Google Doodle

0lespaulgd.jpg
Today's Google Doodle is a sweet homage to Les Paul, the musician and electric guitar pioneer who would have celebrated his 96th birthday today. While Paul didn't technically invent the electric guitar, he did solve the problem of feedback with his solid-body model, developed in his apartment in Queens, New York in the 1940s.
The Les Paul Google Doodle allows you to digitally play the guitar on their homepage. Strumming by mouse/trackpad is fun if tricky; but hit the black button below the strings, which enables you to play by keyboard, and then you're off to the races.
