Music fans, rejoice! The popularity of the playable Les Paul Google doodle has prompted the search engine to create a standalone site where users can play to their hearts’ content.
“With all the great tunes you’ve created, we had to give the #LesPaul doodle a permanent home. Keep on rockin!” Google tweeted Friday night.
You can find the site at google.com/logos/2011/lespaul.html. Play the logo just as you did on the Google.com homepage; U.S. users can record and share their masterpieces.
The Thursday doodle, in honor of musician and electric guitar pioneer Les Paul, features the strings of a guitar in the shape of the Google logo. That logo is actually playable—strum it with your mouse and it plays a song. The concept is arguably now one of the search giant’s most popular homepage creations. The company even left it up an additional day in the U.S. due to popular demand.
The Google Doodles keep getting paper. The latest doodle that was up on June 10th, which was in honor of the guitar pioneer Les Paul, has its own page at http://www.google.com/logos/2011/lespaul.html.
