Step 1: The Karate Chop

The first step is what I call "The Karate Chop." Chop you left hand with your right hand. Chop right where the fingers meet the palm.

HIYA!

Step 2: The Bird... Trap

This step is called the bird trap. (?) Trap the bird in your hand....

Step 4: How to Use it!

How it's time to use it!

Put your lips on the knuckles of your thumbs, DO NOT "make out" with the hole between your thumbs. This doesn't work. Blow down into the hole. Notice how the hole is still exposed when it's up to my mouth. That's okay, it's not a trumpet.

You should have make a single note. To change the pitch, move the fingers on your left hand away from the whistle. This makes it higher. To make that crazy Western Movie Showdown sound, blow while moving your left fingers in and out! With practice, it's very easy!

Whoa- that actually worked for me on the first try! Cool. Of course, I can whistle normally, but this seems like a good life skill. Can you teach me how to do the high pitched whistle with two fingers in the mouth?

No, but my mom can! She would literally be at my neighbor's house, and she would use that instead of a phone to call me home. I'll ask her how to do that. It's like... super sonic!
My dad does the same thing no matter where we are it may be down the street, at the other end of Walmart, or anywhere else.
Sweet. My swim coach used to do that, but didn't want to teach us how. ;)
I posted a small instructable with some tips.

I found out how to do it. you blow on top of it like a flute as where you blow on top of the hole.

Can I just say that you told us to Chop our left hand with our right hand, but then showed us chopping our right hand with our left? Also, where should the chopping hand lie on the chopped hand? Should the pinky lay across the fingers, or should the meaty part of our hand between the pinky and the wrist lay across the fingers? And, what's wrong with making out with the hole between our thumbs? :)
Super Cameraman (author)  mrmath7 years ago
Oh shoot, the pictures are all mirrored.... That's why it's messed up. And making our with the hole, while... fun (?) doesn't make a whistle.
I fixed the pictures.

Why is the face partially pixellated? Is someone wanted by the law for whistling? L
Super Cameraman (author)  lemonie7 years ago
Haha, no. My face looked really wierd in the picture, and then the camera died, so I couldn't retake it.
Okay, fine. I fixed it.
lol seriously
I was wondering the same thing. Is it a crime in your town to express one's feelings through music?
OMG OMG I did it!!!! Thank you I've always wondered how. yay
