Best Answer

Take one large gum leaf. With your fingernail, scratch off a small piece of the flesh of the leaf from one side, leaving the membrane of the other side exposed. It is slightly transparent if done successfully. With your lips pursed, blow across the exposed membrane to make a sound. Accomplished gum leaf players can get simple tunes out of the vibrating edge of the membrane.
