Let's see..... I've been playing the piano and organ since I was about six. I guess that would qualify usage of the word "musician". But wait before you plant that title on me.
Playing the organ consists of reading the music, playing with both hands on two (or many) different levels of organ keys, changing registers if you have to do so in the middle of songs, controlling the volume of the organ with your right foot while playing the foot pedals with your left. And least I do. I can't play foot pedals with my right foot for some reason. Never could. But many people sure do. I still can't figure out how even I can do that each week. How does the brain work that?
But this baffles me completely. I was watching ABC World News Now in the middle of the night last night and they ended with the theme song "World News Polka" with this guy playing it his way:
How does he do that! Each glass has different levels of water and some glasses are different sizes so each glass has a different tone. And the speed with which he does that? Amazing! I wonder if the water has to be different temperatures. And I think you can do that with only crystal glasses, but I'm not sure about that. Alice can enlighten me.
This is a musician!
