    Ehhhm, that really ONLY applies to anything in science.
    Besides he said spiritual, which relates to the souls of the living. Similar people attract,
    not really opposites.

    Adam, I love your videos, but I have to argue:

    “One fundamental spiritual principle of the universe is that like attracts like.”

    No, no, no. Opposites attract. North and South, Plus and Minus. It’s physics!

    I have to agree …
    I have to agree with you: of the hundreds of thousands of people who have viewed, and learned from, my videos, at least three people–one per year–have taken time out of their day to tell me that. One fundamental spiritual principle of the universe is that like attracts like. This would suggest that you notice my scariness–rather than, say, my skill, or my passion–because you, too, are scary, or scared. Interesting. Well, you’re one of three to notice, in three years. Thanks!

    For many years I’ve …
    For many years I’ve played with a guitar man named Sterling Magee. His street-name when I met him in Harlem, and for all the years that we toured (1991-1998), was Mr. Satan. We were known as (and recorded as) Satan and Adam. So I put Satan Adam as tags on any videos of mine where that association is relevant. Anybody searching satan adam blues will pull up our videos.

    I wonder why the manufacturers don’t get it right from the start? You would think that they would want to sell harmonicas that played correctly.
