Knowing how to whistle with your fingers can be useful when you want to get someone's attention. This way of whistling can be difficult, but with a little practice, you'll be whistling loudly in no time!
Method 1 of 2: Using Two Fingers
Step 1. Glue the tips of the index finger and thumb
You are free to choose your left or right hand, but you can only use one hand. It will be easier if you use your dominant hand. The index finger and thumb should form a ring.
Step 2. Open your mouth and stretch your lips to cover your teeth
The teeth should be completely covered. Lips should also be curved into the mouth.
Step 3. Move your tongue back inside your mouth
Curl your tongue up so that the tip is pointing at the roof of your mouth. Then, move it backwards so that the space in front of the mouth opens. There should be about 1 cm between the tongue and the front teeth.
Step 4. Place your index finger and thumb inside your mouth
Push your fingers into your mouth until they touch your tongue. Your finger ring should now be horizontal.
Step 5. Take a deep breath and close your mouth around your fingers
Stretch your lips over your teeth so that the only gap between your lips is the space between your fingers. This is where the air will flow when you whistle.
Step 6. Exhale through your fingers and out of your mouth
Blow forcefully, but not to the point of being painful. Don't worry if the whistling sound hasn't come out yet. It does take some practice before you can whistle with your fingers. If the whistling still doesn't come out, take a deep breath and try again. In the end you will be able to do it!
Method 2 of 2: Using Four Fingers
Step 1. Make an “A” shape with both hands using the index and middle fingers
Straighten the middle and index fingers on each hand. Adjust the palms so that they are facing you. Then, touch the tips of your middle fingers so that they form the letter “A”. Keep the ring and little fingers bent down. Use your thumb to hold it in place if necessary.
Step 2. Stretch your lips to cover your teeth
The teeth should be completely covered and the lips should be curved at the edge of the teeth.
Step 3. Place the tips of your middle and index fingers in front of your mouth
Turn your palms towards you. Make sure you still maintain the "A" shape of your finger when it's tucked in front of your mouth.
Step 4. Use your fingers to push your tongue behind your mouth
Lift your tongue so that the tip is pointing up towards the roof of your mouth. Then, push on the underside of the tongue with the tips of the middle and index fingers. Continue pushing as far into the mouth as possible.
Step 5. Cover your mouth around your fingers
The mouth must be completely closed and air can only flow through the gaps between the fingers. A whistling sound will come out through this gap.
Step 6. Blow air through your fingers and lips
You should force your breath out, but don't blow so hard that you hurt yourself. After a few tries, take another deep breath and close your lips tightly around your fingers again. Just keep trying and you will eventually whistle!
