Les Paul Google Doole

Today’s extremely cool Google doodle is a playable Les Paul Guitar in honor of the what would have been his 96th birthday.

You’ve got 10 notes of one major chord to work with (all rows of your keyboard will play the same notes of the same scale.

Here’s how to use your keyboard keys to play a bit of The Beatles’ “Hey Jude”, Bob Marley’s “Redemption Song” and the chorus of Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face”.
