First you will need a glass, water, and a finger(please don't cut you finger off to use it).
Step 2: How to Do It
First fill the glass with water (the more water the lower the pitch) don't use the tip of you finger use the middle of it(not the literal middle the middle of the top section of your finger). Get water on your finger until you can make a sound when you rub it on the glass then make some noise. Note: don't push really hard on the glass but don't just skim the glass.
