Can you whistle? I can't whistle for crap. It took me until I was 17 years old to be able to make any kind of noise similar to a whistle come out of me voluntarily. Before that, the closest I got to whistling was a nose whistle. You ever had your nose whistle? It's pretty weird.

In high school I knew this kid called Aaron Rich who could whistle like some kind of whistling fool. I swear, any song, any piece of music, give it to him and he could whistle it. It was kind of hypnotizing.

Can you whistle well? Can you whistle complex tunes? What is your preferred method of whistling: fingers in mouth, or mouth only. Do you whistle often? Will you record yourself whistling and post it?

I tried, but I don't have a very good mic, so you can't even hear it. I have a wussy whistle.

I can do the whistle with fingers in my mouth, and I do so to get the attention of someone. I'm also often requested to whistle tunes and if I've heard the song there's a good chance I can produce something that sounds relatively similar.

Yup, I can whistle without the help of other appendages besides my lips. Though, I can't whistle things too complex. I'm not that good. I usually stick with simple things like that whistling song from Kill Bill.

Yes. I can both suck in and produce air in order to create a tune up to five minutes at a time without breathing.

i can whistle inhaling and exhaling...i can mimic a lot of local bird calls. and i like whistling certain songs...i like whistling harmonica solos...cause i can't play harmonica...

i tried to teach my older sister to whistle, she'll never get it. but then i can't burp on command....so y'know...we're all different or something.

I can whistle without my fingers, though not with them. I do not whistle anything complex, just like the Legend of Zelda theme or something like that , but I tend to frig it up.

I can whistle by pursing my lips, or by putting the tip of my tongue to the roof of my mouth.

http://www.snowy-day.net/stuff/rubah%20-%20faranctocatta.ogg is a amalgation of Bizet's Farandole and Bach's Tocatta and Fugue that we played for our field show a couple of years ago. I skipped some parts but didn't feel like rerecording xD

it's in ogg vorbis format because apparently mp3 doesn't like high pitches and actually expanded the file .1mb from the original wave file. OGG won't hurt you anyways.

I can just barely whistle, though I do get the odd good one.

I can't whistle.:(

But I can do this thing where you cup your hands in front of your mouth and you blow into the hole you make with your hands and though its hard to explain it makes a pretty coold sound.

I used to whistle with food in my mouth when I was younger. Oh fuck it, I still do that. Food everywhere! :laugh:

I can for awhile.

I always offbeat-ish-ly whistle any song.

It sounds like a recorder. I have become famous for the technique.

I can also whistle very well, if you son't mind me saying. I often whistle FF tunes or other video game music. Shadow's theme from FF6 sounds particularly good while whistled.

Ifn you can whistle Auron's theme, you get naked pix and five bucks.

But not really naked pix, just five bucks.

I whistle like a magical whistling machine. OF DOOM.

I can whistle, but it's a pretty unreliable skill. Sometimes I'll be able to keep up with a melody perfectly, others I'll be completely tuneless. When it works, though, whistling's very fun. :greenie:

I'm a pretty good whistler.. or at least that's what I think.

I can't whistle in any way at all, no matter how much I try. :(

I suck at whistling. I can do the whole "cat call" thing...barely. But, that's about it. Whistling tunes or with my fingers is out of the question.

I barely managed to whistle when I got to 15 years old. But I still can't make it perfectly.
