I can't whistle. I mean, yeah, I can make a couple of whistles if I keep on trying, but not enough to qualify as whistling. It's not very loud at all. I fail. And for some reason, people whistling gets on my nerves, especially when it's a girl doing it. Go figure.


Yeah, it's pretty much the same for me.. and I don't really like people whistling either. tongue.gif

I think that I can whistle, and my dogs appreciate it, or at least respond to it. Humans, not so much. Then again, I feel that when Mother Nature selected primates rather than canines to have the big brain with language capabilities, She made a big mistake.

I know it's a random thing to post but whistling is one of those things that most people seem to be able to do but... I cannot whistle. I've tried but I can't do it.

How can this be something that comes so easily to people ?!

Is there anybody here who can't whistle either ? You can join my non whistling club ! laugh.gif

In the 5th grade, a friend of mine noticed my front teeth are large so he told me: 'Dude! You know that you are built in such a way that you can whistle like crazy!'

The result? An 11 year old Cosmin whistling like a sheep herder in the ears of....girls... Yes, back then it was so fun! laugh.gif Of course they hated it and implicitly me, but hey I WAS HAVING FUN! laugh.gif

Alright man! Awesome to have you on board!
I'm honored to be your teacher.

Before we start, please tell me more about your goals (what kind of whistling you want to achieve, how much time you can devote to practicing every day etc.)

Who are your favorite whistlers? Shepherds? The guy on Rammstein's song Engel?
Or something like this:



Also, please send me a link of your current whistling attempts so I'll know where to start!

Looking forward to your answers mate!

I really shouldn't say what comes to mind... I'll just laugh in the gutters of my own mind.

I'm a whistler!

I can whistle but the one and only time I whistled at a girl she turned on me and cussed me out blink.gif

Now I pretty much just whistle when I'm trying to remember melodies for songs I want to learn to play.
