Wine Glasses Music

Wine glasses creates music through the rims filled with water, and the player’s fingers rubbed them to create notes. Way back 1741, a glass harp instrument or musical glasses which made of upright wine glasses was created by an Irishman Richard Pockrich, the first virtuoso of the instrument. This has been more popularized in the 18th century mostly in European countries, and up to the present several musicians are into wine glasses music.
