Do you mean the trick where the glass rim is rubbed with a wet finger? This is caused by resonance but I don’t know more than that. Sorry 🙂
As James said, it is resonance. When you rub your finger around the rim, the friction causes vibration. This vibration occurs at a certain speed, or frequency and we hear it as a certain note. If you change the level of water in the glass, it will change the frequency and sound different.
Nicely explained, Dustin.
