Whistle: It might have been from a sample CD. To me, it sounds as though it has been made using a flute sample, with a soft attack and a pitch shift up, just for the beginning of the sample, followed by vibrato ( pitch modulation ) – to give the effect of a whistle.

Guitars: These were definitely from a sample CD. I think it was called Reggae Connection. I just used a few samples and used them at different pitches.
