Sue Baker's letter to the Freeman after Les' memorial dedication reminded me that there is a really great website for the Les Paul Foundation on which she serves. My first thought was "hey, the Les Paul Google Doodle is still available," and I started playing with that. In preparation for this post I took another look at the site and "hey, the entire dedication is on video!" If you have any interest at all you should take a peek.
Back on June 9th I blogged about the Google Doodle for Les' 96th birthday. Since then I've seen a lot of creative things done with it on YouTube. At first I thought you had to use just the mouse, but it's far easier to use the keyboard. Many of the Google Doodle YouTube videos show the key combinations in the comment section so you can play it yourself. You have to push the record button to start using the keyboard. The recording will soon stop, but you can keep playing. One of the easiest and recognizable tunes I've found with instructions is Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here. Have a listen. You have to watch it on YouTube to see the comments with key combination.
