Record of note

A Pittsboro, N.C., man has whistled his way into the record book. But not in the pleasant, whistle-while-you-work way. Instead, Walker Harnden has made his way into the Guinness World Records by whistling out an ear-splitting highest ever note whistled. In front of two music professionals at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, where Harnden is a student, the 19-year-old managed to whistle a B7—one note below a high C. Harnden’s whistle knocks off previous whistling record setter Jennifer Davies of Canada who set her mark in 2006.
