The uke player on "Sweet Georgia Brown" is a very, very fine guitarist called Rob Bourassa - one of the doyens of the Acoustic Guitar (Magazine) Discussion Forums. Also a talented and generous guitar teacher. Good to see him letting his hair down just a bit and having a good time.

There are quite a few of these hand musicians around...
and have been guests on Prairie Home Companion and
several night time variety shows...though i missed
this until posted on facebook .

My dad used to whistle with a blade of grass between
his thumbs...hands together in similar fashion to this
also the squirting of water that some folks have perfected
while swimming, well, not actually WHILE swimming, as you
need your hands to paddle, but when at a swimming pool or hole...
would probably be a good exercise to prepare the hands for this..

Some of the more extreme hand driers in use these days allow a similar technique to be used (electric manualism?). There's was a particularly good example in the toilet block of the camp site I've been at for the last few days. I'd just about got When the Saints Go Marching In perfected by the end of our stay...

Simple pleasures....

When I was in school, my class spent quite a lot of time hand whistling. It's a shame we never thought of doing anything beyond owl/train sounds.

Hand Whistler
(wish I had found a different clip)

I love stuff like this!
My grass (or cellophane) whistling is pretty limited to unlovely squawks and I can't hardly get a sound with handfarter efforts, but I sure do enjoy trying.

If you squeeze a drumstick against your cheek and blow through the top of your gumline, you can make a sound that gets the boys in band in trouble.
Girls don't make sounds like that, you know...

I'll be keeping an eye open for a hard-blowing hand drier!

'Sweet Georgia Brown' was wonderful! Really cheered me up on a rather dull, chilly Friday afternoon here in East London. Thanks to all for the clips.

than hand whistling is a bit more melodic than the hand farting, don't you think? http://www.handmelodies.com/
