Who knew this sound could come out of simple glass jars?

It's amazing the sound something so simple can make. 

Tap two glass jars against each other and you expect to hear a plunk (and maybe a shattering sound). But when the jars are allowed to continue making contact, the sound turns from plunking to a rapid tapping to a weird, almost guitar like noise that sounds like -- well, it's really hard to describe.

Check it out.
