How to Snap Your Fingers

It's classier than clapping for keeping rhythm, and you never know when it'll come in handy.

You will need

  • Your hand
  • Your tongue
  • A bit of spit

Step 1 Decide which hand Decide which hand you want to use — we suggest your dominant hand, which is usually the hand you write with.

Step 2 Place middle finger & thumb together Place the tips of your middle finger and thumb together.

Step 3 Rest ring finger & pinky against palm Let your ring finger and pinky rest against your palm.

Step 4 Swipe middle finger down Now quickly, swipe your middle finger down so that it hits the palm of your hand. At the same time, let your thumb pop up to meet your index finger.

Step 5 Congratulations You should hear a solid ‘snap’—the sound of your middle finger slapping against your palm. Congratulations! Now learn how to whistle and you’ll be a double threat.
