Google Doodle Pays Tribute to Les Paul


Everyone knows about Google Doodles by now, but that fact doesn’t make the experience of discovering the new Google Doodle any less fun. Earlier today, when I woke up, the first thing I saw on my screen was today’s Doodle, which is a tribute to guitar legend (among other things) Les Paul.

Born Lester William Polsfuss on the 9th of June in 1915, Les Paul is best known for the solid-body electric guitar. Enthusiasts will tell you that this guitar is what made the sound we know and love as rock ‘n roll possible. And every guitar player – aspiring or accomplished – will know a Les Paul for what it is.

Back to what Google has for us today – the Doodle is fun, fun, fun! My opinion is that it seems to be hit and miss with Google Doodle – some of them not being that remarkable at all. In this case, though, they did a pretty good job. Not exactly like the Pac-Man Doodle, but good enough.

You just need to hover your mouse over the strings and you get to play music – not quite like you do on a real guitar, but it still is a lot of fun. You even get to turn a sound effects bar (I think that’s what it is). I tried capturing the screen while playing (the guitar strings light up), but no matter how hard I tried, I just wasn’t fast enough. You can’t imagine how long I tried to get those darned strings!

In any case, when you do need a break today, check out the Doodle. Don’t blame me if you end up “wasting” a lot of time playing around with the “chords” though.
