    Pink Floyd`s Shine On You Crazy Diamond (studio version) is a much better demonstration of a glass organ.

    @ Robert_D. Pink Floyd tried it after Dark Side of the Moon in 1974. A project called "Household Objects" It was abandoned. The only thing that survived from that attempt was the wine glasses. (see peter`s comment below)

    they are called "stomp" very large band but good.

    I`m pretty sure some of those glasses were off note but good effort

    The sound of that really reminds me of a flute playing it. The glasses give that song a very light sound, just like a flute.

    """its not hard you just need a bunch of wine glasses filled with various levels of water wet you fingers and gently rub the rims of the glasses."""

    ^^ Obviously the concept isn`t hard to understand.. but to master them as flawlessly as he has is quite another matter. Also I don`t think he`s using glasses, but using crystal.

    The tinkerbell song is the Dance of the Sugarplum Faeries. Not the same. And it so totally does rock because he plays it on crystal glasses.
