Playing Christmas music on glass harp is oddly haunting (Video)

Tchaikovsky’s “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy” played on a glass harp. Seems easy enough.

    MAN, this is some cool stuff. It would be more impressive if baldy did it solo, but I'm guessing he's not equipped with enough arms for the task. Nonetheless, some super talent on display here… and MASSIVE amounts of patience.

    Why would something so cool be tagged as "Idiot" and "Fail"?

    • TiminPhx

      Because whoever tagged it thus, is an obvious idiot that failed in said tagging.

      You are right, it's incredibly cool.

    @da sandman
    The sounds comes from the vibrations in the glass. If you rub them just right the glass vibrates. Different size glasses make different notes. Usually has to be a crystal glass like those ones to work though
