An old relative of mine has a horrible singing voice. When my daughter was a tiny baby she would cry as soon as he started singing and would carry on until he stopped.
He can whistle beautifully, note perfect with a wide range.
Has anyone else experienced this? I would have thought you could either do both or neither.
