Today's Google Doodle logo is a salute to the late great guitarist Les Paul. But you don't need to be a guitar hero to play it.

Just strum some chords with your mouse. You can even record your improvisation, then forward a URL of your masterpiece to friends. Enjoy it while it lasts! Who knows what tomorrow's Doodle will be.

This is only a picture; go to Google to play the real thing!
