    • @Alice Lacey Rude of you to assume my gender - this has nothing to do with gender. And I'm not "well actually"ing her, I'm just telling her the truth. I don't know what's your knowledge and experience about whistles and particularly this style of whistling - but I can tell you FOR SURE that this is not the full potential of the whistle. It shouldn't upset you that I gave her some tips to succeed. In the end, acknowledging her whistle as a success is like saying you passed a driver's test by driving in a straight line.

    • @TheTitanSmash :3 oh for goodness sake. A woman is on the show for 1 episode and a load of men start 'well actually'ing her. Embarrassing yourselves

    • Soph you're a genius. After watching 1 minute of your video, I could make the first audible whistling sound, 5 minutes in and I can already make it really loud. Takes a ton of tries, but the rest is consistent practice. Thank you so much!

    • Soph's Notes big tip! if you close your nose and do it, it will be louder

    • @roro casem I could, but credit should be given where it is due. Unfortunately, not here. I wish her good luck in improving on it, but lying and telling her "good job" when that whistle is nowhere near its full potential is just lying. That's good progress, indeed - but she has only just started. If she wants to consider this a real talent-earned then she has to get better at it.

  • I got dizzy too when trying to learn this. I think the repetitive strong breaths in and out make your blood CO2 levels be so low that your blood becomes more basic than it should be. It's the same reason hyperventilation makes people faint.

  • After I mastered the 4 finger whistle I instantly mastered the Taxi Whistle! Once you have the technique its easy. Tutorial 1 - Make a circle using your thumb and your index finger (use your writing hand) 2 - Leave no gap on the circle and place it in your mouth 3 - Curl the tip of your tounge and place your circle over the curled part 4 - Make sure to hide your teeth with your lips 5 - blow and experiment until you hear a whistle sound. You should get it in less than an hour!!

Too bad many of us (me personally included) prefer to stay "hidden" in our comfort zone and we don't learn anything new, we just waste time watching other people do it :)
