Or, I should rather say that, one of the homes, because I’m so-much-sure that many people in the blogosphere would want to do the same, and may already be doing it.

Yes, I’m one of those who were awestruck when the Guitar showed up as soon as I fired up my browser (Google being my homepage). And, when I ran my mouse pointer over it, it played tunes. This is one of the best Doodles by Google. Upon discovering that it could be played via the keyboard too, I started figuring out the notes and went on to try some music (and down went my productivity in office for the rest of the day).

Google Doodle – a revised version of the Google homepage logo – is the highest honor, this search engine gives to a significant date. Well, June 9, does manage to take the doodle to a new level. On this day in 1915 Lester William Polsfuss was born. He is better known as Les Paul, the guitarist, song writer, and most importantly for understanding the doodle – the inventor of the original solid-body electric guitar.

Google has used the power of HTML5, CSS , JavaScript to create a working guitar you can play with your keyboard or mouse. Although, it’s not pure HTML5, and it uses Flash for the sound.

Since, I liked it so much, I thought if I could bring it to my-home-on-the-web. And, thanks to one of my friends, Pawan Singh for figuring it out. So, here it is, the awesome Google Guitar Doodle, preserved here forever – at the disposal of all (including myself) who want to play around with it’s tunes anytime they want.
