    Go to Google and play the guitar. You can even record.

    Have Fun and Happy Birthday Mr. Guitar!
     
  2. That's fun! Happy 96th Les! Wish you were still around to enjoy it!
     
  3. He was THE MAN. RIP.

    Nice tribute. I am guessing that someone at Google is a guitar player.
     
  5. He invented the solid body electric guitar, at least as we know it today.

    He invented multitrack recording by “grafting” a second tape head onto a recorder.

    He revolutionized mic placement techniques.

    What a guy!

    He brushed past me in 2006 at the Iridium. I was tempted to never wash my left arm again! I'm fortunate that I had the honor of seeing the man perform.

    RIP Les.

    More information on this Gggle "Doodle" - You can play it with your keyboard! AND record your song.

    the doodle allow you to run your mouse cursor over the strings to hear authentic Les Paul strumming. You can try picking out a tune but a better method is to activate the keyboard controls by pressing the button beneath the strings. Then tap keys from left to right to play a scale (each row of keys is tuned the same), or pick out a melody.
