Do you whistle or hum music which Sep. 23rd, 2012 @ 08:50 AM Reply

- sounds nothing like the actual instrument at all? Like humming a instrumental piece of music which ordinarily would sound diverse and great but when hummed sounds utterly bland and generic and has no actual style to it other than following a rough guide of the pitch of the piece?

Hopefully you do, as I do it, and I would like to not be alone on that.

Oh I definitely, definitely do. I like to try and find harmonies in songs when I hum and just make noises aswell.


This is a song about cum on hotel walls.

I can press my middle and forefinger together and then press the to mine lips to make a sound like a violin. If I use my thumb and two index fingers I can make a sound like a saxaphone. So it must just be you that's bland.

I usually just hum along to the vocal melodies, or since alot of the music I listen to utilizes synthesizers, I hum along to the synth line. Even though a person singing and a synthesizer are very different sounds, I just hum along with the same weird noise for both. I'd be hard pressed to DESCRIBE the noise I make, though

I repeat the songs in my own mind exactly as I heard them.

When I hum, it's like an orchestra.

Not quite sure what you are saying. Just humming the melody? Of course it won't sound as good as the actual song.

Almost all the time. But I can't whistle for shit, so I usually hum/tap feet and fingers/produce a hard-to-describe noise in my mouth to recreate the song.

Poorly.

I tend to catch myself whistling the Lost Woods song from Ocarina of Time.
