Google's Doodle featuring Les Paul

Well to a surprise, today Google's Doodle comes with music.

It's Les Paul's Birthday!

Lester William Polsfuss (June 9, 1915 – August 12, 2009)[3][4]—known as Les Paul—was an American jazz and country guitarist, songwriter and inventor. He was a pioneer in the development of the solid-body electric guitar which "made the sound ofrock and roll possible".[5] He is credited with many recording innovations. Although he was not the first to use the technique, his early experiments with overdubbing (also known as sound on sound),[6] delay effects such as tape delay, phasing effects andmultitrack recording were among the first to attract widespread attention.

This doodle can be played using keyboard. Just press the keyboard-like thingy which will turn red after pressing it. Then you can play with it using your keyboard.

Weird thing is, it plays 10 notes, which is not a perfect octave, or the usual range of guitar. I am not a musician, so I am not very sure which note the guitar started.
Need someone to explain to me..
