Many would have tried this before rubbing the rim of wine glass or beer mug in pubs or discos only to produce noise or sound but no music. How about making music with wine glass with class with Yesterday?

Wine glass is fine. Best effect is to wash your hands and fingers clean. Hold the glass firmly by the base with the other hand and rub your wet finger around the rim. Eventually you will surely get the glass to resonate. Robert Tiso plays first m. of symphony n°5, by L.V.Beethoven, with glass harp. Cool..

Picture is not that sharp but the music is awesome, fantastic..

Close Encounter of the 'Glass' Kind..

Glass Harpist Alexander Zoltan performs on the Charles Bridge in Prague, Czech Republic.

Fantastic sound - Vienna street player performs the organ music with his water glasses.

Jamey Turner plays something familiar - 'The Moon Represents My Heart' by Teresa Teng - [yuèliang dàibiǎo wǒde xīn] "月亮代表我的心" and Beethoven's Ode to Joy on the "glass harp".

Amazing wine glass music by Jamey Turner. Jameyturner.com

Another great compilation. Thanks.

The noise that we generate with a glass can shatter other glasses but before that, you'd get all heads and glares going your direction for creating that deafening high-pitched racket.

Wow this the first time I hear about glass harpist. Very creative musicians!

Bananaz ~ Thanks for dropping by so you have created only noise instead of muzik haha.

HappySurfer ~ Oh really, you need a bigger rim glass or a very low volume of water to get that high pitch? Interesting.

Mei Teng ~ Indeed they are awesome, harping number by LV Beethoven number.
