I don't know exactly where else on the board to put this, but does anybody here like to put in whistling lines when you're writing a song?
I can't whistle -.-
You sing in praise of suicide, we know you're useless, like cops at the scene of the crime.
The sky is a landfill.
i havent really whistled, but i have sung lines of words that dont even make sense. i find it better than 'lalada' to fill spaces. sometimes you actually come up with a good line by doing that! i had a whole song grow from one spontaneous line that didnt make sense at first....doesnt happen often though :(
I've never written a song, but I do whistle the harmonica breaks in some songs ie: The River by Springsteen.
Check out Billy Joel's " The Stranger" , cool whistling intro/outro
The only song that springs to mind with whistling in it for me is GnR Patience which is awesome.
Dock of the Bay, Otis.

I can't whistle, but I did play harmonica before I started the guitar. I gotta get back into that, it can really add some spice.
Andrew Bird does:
Andrew Bird is good. I personally prefer Jolie Holland's whistling to his, though.
It's nice to know that I'm not the only one who can't whistle! Never been able to ... doubt I ever will! All that ever comes out is air!
