Glass Harp Musical Instrument

When I saw this glass instrument for the first time, I thought they just touch the glass and start playing the background sound. Well I am wrong hehe.., after I watch how to play music using wine glass? Then I know the glass really produce sound but we need to use skill especially our finger. Glass Harp musical instrument also called musical glasses, singing glasses, angelic organ, verrilion or ghost fiddle. This instrument is made using wine glasses which is filling with water to create different music note. It is was created in 1741 by Irishman Richard Pockrich,who is known as the first virtuoso of musical glasses. The right picture show Jamey Turner in playing glass harp.



This youtube video clip show Jamey Turner’s skill in playing glass harp music instrument in Old Town Alexandria. Nice entertainer, I like the skill. After watch it and then let’s go buy wine glass hehe…

We need to keep wet our finger to touch the wine glass while playing the music. This little boy and his sister will show on how to play the glass harp. Nice tutorial hehe…

Man I love the sound. I have tried to produce sound with my own wine glass. It was so nice. If I had more glasses I could have made some music.
