Description: This is a simple trick to whistle using a blade of grass

Difficulty: Easy

Instructions:
Start by finding a blade of grass at least two inches long. Bermuda Grass works fantastic for this because it’s a stronger blade.
Find a thick piece of grass Picture of Bermuda Grass

Place the blade of grass between your two thumbs pinched between the first knuckle and the second knuckle. You should see a long oval shaped hole split down the middle by the blade of grass.
Place between both thumbs

Place your mouth over the hole and blow lightly. You have to find the exact speed of which to blow at. You also can vary the tightness of the blade by moving your thumbs slightly to change the pitch of the whistle emitted.
blow through the small crack and the grass will vibrate making noise

Result: You can play very simple songs with this technique.
