Charlie Christian, and Elmore Leonard were playing electric

guitar before Les Paul had dropped the last syllable of his name. And Leo Fender had his patent earlier than Mr. Paul. Now he was a very good guitar player, and a wonderful tinkerer with electronics, but lets not get all wrapped around one tree in the middle of a forest of geniuses, large and small.

I have to say that the fact that Les Paul hand wound the coils for Eric Clapton's guitars is a touching story, but I'd have been much happier if he'd passed the Selmer Maccaferri guitar along to me as someone who could appreciate it and pay it due homage.

Did you notice?

The 4 strings on the far right will play "Taps".

That's more than I can do

I've actually got a fairly decent Gretsch acoustic guitar that I bought at auction. It sits as more an ornament than a musical instrument now. But Taps is just 4 notes and I had to wonder if these were placed there deliberately.

(NT) Because Paul is dead? Possibly.

I just discovered something

I tried using some keys on that google page and it plays the guitar. The numbers , Q, A, Z lines of characters will do the notes in ascending order. I suppose that would make it easier to compose a tune than using the mouse. The drawback is a small time delay between hitting a key and hearing the sound.

You're right...didn't try that

And you can do chords too...

Also, if you hold down the key and then release the

the note plays on the upstroke but won't do a hammer on/pull off.
