Google is looking musicial this Thursday morning. The Internet is buzing about Google's latest Doodle--guitar chords.

The search engine chose guitar chords for Thursday's Doodle to honor the legendary American jazz and country guitarist Les Paul on what would have been his 96th birthday. Paul dies in 2009.

The Doodle is more than just a fun design--it's interactive. The Google guitar is interactive meaning Googlers can play and record their own musical arrangements and channel a little Les Paul.

Google Doodles have been around since 1998. Ever since the customized logos have been a Google staple, gaining almost as much traffic for the search engine as actual searches. The YouTube video below explains the Doodle's features.
