Google Guitar

Google GuitarGoogle Guitar, Google has created a play along Doodle to commemorate the anniversary of the birth of the electric guitar inventor Les Paul. Les Paul (1915-2009), for those who do not know, was jazz / blues musician and inventor of the solid body electric guitar that started-started the rock and roll. Featured on page ‘s search of the drawing can take place mouse cursor over the strings to hear authentic Les Paul playing. You can try to choose a song, but a better method is to activate the keyboard controls by pressing the button under the ropes. Then press the left and right keys to play a scale (each row of keys is tuned the same), or select a melody.

Doodle releases include a recording button, and guests to share their music through a unique URL. This has gone on some version of the Google search page, but remains visible in others.

Google says that the scribble was achieved through a combination of HTML5, JavaScript and Flash plugin; it provides the sound of the strings. HTML5 theoretically could handle everything, but Google has to maintain compatibility with older browsers.

Paul was not a one trick pony and also invented multi-track recording, which was a recording studio much more efficient. Suddenly, the musicians do not have to play all at once, but could track down the runway and then mixed it all together, add additional lines for implementation if they so wished.

The Smithsonian Institution awarded a Bicentennial Medal Paul before his death.

First round of Google Doodle in 1998 celebrated the Burning Man festival Scribbles and principles simply celebrate holidays or special events, such as the Day of the Olympics or the Earth. Doodles evolved to celebrate the birth anniversaries of notable figures of science and art, and recently Doodles have become interactive. The Les Paul Doodle is a perfect continuation of this beautiful tradition, which is a tribute to a man involved in the art and science.
