The Thursday doodle, in honor of musician and electric guitar pioneer Les Paul, features the strings of a guitar in the shape of the Google logo. That logo is actually playable—strum it with your mouse and it plays a song. The concept is arguably now one of the search giant's most popular homepage creations. The company evenleft it up an additional dayin the U.S. due to popular demand.
Here in the PCMag offices, the newsroom was filled with the sounds of amateur musicians crafting their own masterpieces all day Thursday. We eventually asked Chris Phillips, PCMag's creative director andan actual musician, to play us a real song andhe mapped out directionsfor using the doodle to play the Beatles' "Here Comes the Sun."
