I had an Aunt who could whistle - and I mean whistle
! It was an amazing instrument - like a solo violin. Wide range, soft and LOUD, vibrato, staccato, glissando, octave leaps - she could do it all. I know how to play keyboards a bit, and I'd play accompaniment for her sometimes. Very few people can whistle like that.
Ten years ago or so, NPR did a little program on a whistler. This guy could do the classics, and the key was that he taught himself to whistle both inhaling and exhaling
. So he could play long lines written for violin (where you have the up and down stroke) w/o running out of breath.
