Happy birthday to the founder of the electric guitar, Les Paul. Though the world lost Les in 2009, his legacy will live on for as long as the electric guitar is played, which I'm hoping is at least until the year 2112. (With advances in modern medicine and science I plan to live to at least 125 years old so I can witness a year that the world will surely spend celebrating Rush's classic album 2112.)

You press ADGK at the same time to make a C chord.
FHK plays an F chord, and GJL plays a G chord.
The pattern you play with these chords goes:
Use one bar per individual chord, so that's 4 beats per letter in my diagram. You can play even quarter notes, you can "swing" it and play eighth notes paired with dotted eighths, whatever you want. Just play that pattern and it'll sound like the blues!
I'm curious to hear what songs people come up with throughout the day. You can record yourself playing with the Record button and Google will generate a link to what you just played after a certain time limit expires. I've already seen an off-key version of Hey Jude's intro section floating around, which was ok, but I expect we'll see some cool stuff played on this before the day is done. Happy Birthday, Les!
