Thanks for highlighting this video. Of all 134 that I've uploaded, this is the only one I'm truly not sure I should leave up. I was trying to create something like harp amp porn, and I think I did--but it's a little creepy, and I don't blame anybody for thinking "WTF??!"

Still, the tone speaks for itself. Maybe ya gotta be this crazy sometimes to be a harp player.

Hey Adam, I love that video. I feel the same way you do about really good vintage harp amps, and that old Bassman of yours is a monster.

Yep, we gotta be a little nuts to spend so much time and money playing an instrument most people regard as a toy. Thanks for all your generosity of time and wisdom on YouTube and Modern Blues Harmonica. You make us all better.
