Subject: RE: glass harmonica casette
I just did a search on 'Glass harmonica' and came up with this thread. the other night my husband and I were surfing throught the musical choices on digital cable's On Demand feature and he decided to watch Korn's performance on MTV's unplugged. I was pleasantly surprised to see that they had a Glass Harmonica Player! They had re-arranged their songs so that the glass harmonica was a featured instrument. it was wonderful! (and this from someone who isn't terribly imprerssed with Korn)

They later had Robert Smith of The Cure come on and they did some covers of Cure songs again with the Glass Harmonica. I was blown away by its sound.

Does anyone know of bands or artists who might incorporate this into their mujsic regularly? The one used by the musician accompanyhing Korn looked like a Finkenbeiner's glass harmonica.
