    What an amazing talented people work at Google! Thanks for posting this, VIETgrlTerifa!

    I came across what I thought was "just" another cool graphic on Google's website yesterday, then realized it was an interactive guitar. It actually records? :slinkaway

    It was cute! I played around with it a little bit, but couldn't really produce any sounds worth recording. :) It'll be interesting to hear what other people did, though.

    I strummed on it for a while yesterday, but didn't record. I'm glad to see it's still there today.

    I played the chorus to Mumford and Son's Little Lion Man...that's the only song I've attempted.

    I was working from home yesterday, but today I'm in the office and I can hear random twanging from people's desks.

    I thought it was totally awesome. They're keeping it at a special page now: http://www.google.com/logos/2011/lespaul.html

    Hail the coding wizards at Google! I know some programmers look down on projects just as these, but the fact that it has delighted so many is certainly noteworthy! Although I still can't make it work on Firefox. :lol:
