    I like the scale being a row of keys on the keyboard. Almost would be cool but the sound is not a guitar (sounds more like a tin piano) and it's glitchy when doing chords and lead at the same time. Still, pretty amusing. Wish it were multi tracked.

    I also find it funny that it sounds similar to an old steel guitar but Less Paul is best known for creating the solid body electric guitar (a 2x4 for the neck!). His music mostly encompassed Jazz which doesn't use steel guitars (though he did country music as well, his best known work is jazz).

    That's because yesterday was Les Paul's birthday. Google was celebrating that fact:

    They decided not to use Les Paul's innovations because it was his birthday? Come again? I think you mis-read what I wrote.

    It was pretty obvious, to me anyway, what it represented. I just found it odd that they didn't use synthesized electric guitar sounds or even multi tracking. The top two things Les was most known for. If anything at least a warm tone for jazz sounds would have been nice. It's pretty cool overall for a free thing that records.

    No, I was just bringing up that yesterday was his birthday and that's why they had the little guitar to play with. If you hadn't mentioned his name I probably would have forgotten I heard them talking about it on the radio on the way to work :D /

    I know nothing about Les Paul outside of knowing there are guitars out there with his name on it.

    haha, I tried an original comp playing it with backing rhythm and lead. I was hoping the lead would come on in yours :)  I've played one so many times on guitar. Crazy.

    This first one my computer kept freezing :

    Second was better but I really wish I had a midi keyboard or multi track:
