google les paul doodleSurprise, surprise -- yesterday's Google doodle honoring famous guitarist Les Paul lives another day! It seems that the interactive Google logo, which is a virtual guitar with "playable" guitar strings, is in fact one of the best ever. Seriously, I don't know if I've ever seen a special edition Google logo stay two days, ever.

Of course, we all had our fair share of fun strumming the virtual strings yesterday. (Boss: Read that as I worked extra hard yesterday, researching.) In fact, it seems that the doodle inspired the world's largest jam session. People are sharing their guitar tunes across the web, showcasing music from the likes of The Beatles and Lady Gaga to American classics.

Let's take a look-see at the 5 most impressive tunes from the Les Paul doodle

1. Lady Gaga's "Paparazzi":

2. "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star," "Joy to the World," and "Lullaby" medley:

3. "Billy Jean" by the Man in the Mirror himself, Michael Jackson:

4. "The Star-Spangled Banner" by John Stafford Smith:

5. My personal favorite: "Hey Jude" by The Beatles, with vocal accompaniment:

It amazes me that people have the talent (yes, we'll call it talent) to compose such masterpieces using their mouse and keyboard! To see more where these came from, check out YouTube!

What's your favorite Google Doodle composition? Have you tried out the strings yourself?
