Whistle register

Don't because it's useless :lol:

Go real quiet, use practically no air, thin out and stretch the folds to their max. And don't try to slide up there just squeak at it. That being said, I am still terrible at whistle voice. They're just squeaks and I probably can't even do them on most days

By the way, there's this thing called whistling, it sounds very similar :lol:

Ok, I tried what you guys are saying. I opened my mouth wide, and then started letting air out so lightly, and i got a whistle. Very very very low volume. Is this the beginning of finding my whistle register or not even close?

I can whistle while inhaling. I've got 2 clips recorded of me trying this. One is me talking around the C6-E6 area ad the other one sliding from F5~ to F6 or something. Both are very short clips, but it's still fun to do. :)

I'd love to be able to sustain whitle notes though....but considering my age (just 19) and little singing experience so far I better focus on my regular singing.

I can whistle by pursing my lips and not using the folds. I can also whistle by inserting two fingers in my lips a certain distance apart.

However, I cannot whistle using my vocal folds. Surely, I am deficient and defective.

:P

Most people cant do whistle cause they neither understand the function or the application,how,when and why to practice this basic voicefunction.

Most just try to aim for a higher place than their falsetto, hoping that it will be there, most fail.

Whistle on inhale is the same as outwards, no duffrence really probably just mental

Jens, When I get a sgueeky note out of an inhale the cords feel super adducted and I am using a lot of breath force. Is it the same for whistle? or are you Lightly adducted with little breath force?

I can make an extended note with highly adducted cords but I do not recommend it.

Hmm.

Jens, you say inhale is the same as exhale, yet i use a lot of suction power to get the whistle when inhaling. From what i was reading it seems that whistle voice (exhale) should be little to almost no air pressure. Is that not right?

I put myself a mission to work on my whistle voice. I think if i can manage whistle voice, i will know more on how my folds work, and it will give me a better foundation to work on the rest of the voice.

Does whistle only start from C6, or can it also be that for me it starts lower?

Thanks!

Do sirens as pure as possible. So, very smooth, without any constriction. Make an vowel (meee).

Really, relax. I mean, you need some tension, but it should be as easy as breathing, really.

My range from D6-G6 is pretty relaxed and effortless. Really, no pushing, no external tension of my face.
