Funny he should pick that tune, because that song was originally composed for an instrument called a "glass harmonica". shown being played here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQemvyyJ-... more info at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glass_harmo... Pretty cool!!

I managed to do the first like 16 notes of "Apologize" once, and all I can say about that setup is that it must be a hell of a pain to tune. ._.

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.

Just because he plays it on cups, that tinker bell song doesnt become and less lame.

its not any more difficult than learning any other instrument, its just not one you can take to band practice. Different, but not impressive.

"""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.

VV yeah, and then do it like him: really fast, without any mistakes. That was really cool, and really impressive.

That takes a feather touch...I remember trying to do the same thing with my mom`s Staffordshire Crystal set. I broke four glasses because my touch wasn`t light enough...ass beatings ensued.

The entire time I was thinking whether this was glass syncing or not, then he stumbled around 0:47, and then I knew.

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.

@ 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)

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