Google's Guitar Logo Plays An Encore

Feature Lets Visitors Record 30-Second Songs By Strumming Chords

(CNN) -- Internet procrastinators got a second day to improvise virtual guitar tunes, thanks to the popularity of Google's homepage guitar logo.

The "doodle," as Google refers to its one-off logo designs, featured a six-string guitar, which let visitors record 30-second songs by strumming chords with a flick of the mouse.

Google posted the widget in honor of electric-guitar guru Les Paul's 96th birthday Thursday. Paul died in 2009 at age 94.

"Due to popular demand, we're leaving the Les Paul doodle up in the U.S. for an extra day," Google wrote via Twitter. "Thanks for jamming with us!"

Remember the interactive Pac-Man doodle from last year? It was such a hit that Google gave it a permanent site. It's unclear whether the Les Paul tribute will get the same treatment.

Whether it was 30 seconds of random strumming or a complicated cover, Google users have come up with a catalog of original songs since Thursday.
