Zelda Fan Plays Mind-Blowing Wineglass Symphony

It's one thing to teach yourself to play the Song of Healing from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. It's another thing to turn it into stunning performance art.

I've always thought wineglass xylophones were kind of cool. You know, you fill a bunch of glasses with different amounts of water to produce different tones when struck - and some people are really, really good at using wineglasses to play music. YouTube user Sp0ontanius,however, takes things to a mind-blowing level with this cover of the Song of Healing from Majora's Mask.

Sure, it starts out simple enough. "Oh, how cute," you might say, "He's playing five different parts by himself. That must take some impressive timing and a lot of practice."

Then the camera tricks start, and I have trouble keeping up with everything that's happening on-screen. I can't even imagine how many tries it took to get this right. Oh sure, the Zelda cover is awesome (do the Requiem of Spirit next!), but it's the performance here that really sells it.

I can't even play one set of wineglasses. Way to make me feel inadequate, dude.
