Yesterday was the 96th birthday of the father of the electric guitar, the great Les Paul. In honor of his memory, Google put a "Guitar Google Doodle" at the top of their page, where visitors can drag the mouse cursor across the strings and "play guitar", and even record their performance and then play it back.

It was such a hit and is so popular, Google is leaving it up for another day in the US. "Due to popular demand, we're leaving the Les Paul doodle up in the U.S. through Friday for an encore. Thanks for jamming with us!" wrote Google designer Alexander Chen in an update on the company's blog Friday morning. This "Doodle" is rivaling the other popular doodles, such as Pac-Man.
