I don't think it was necessary to add any more information. I understand fully that you are the best. Your playing is an inspiration to all, and I consider myself fortunate just to have this all-too limited, impersonal sort of communication with you.

Like you, I often wonder about what makes me so great. This question keeps me up at night. I wonder, "Why, God? Why am I so great? Why can't everyone have 'it'?" And I really can't come up with the answer. It haunts me. It's just a cruel twist of fate, a cosmic joke.

You should have titled this one "Am I the best at rhetorical questions".

I think the majority of the people in the thread seemed amused.

I don't know why, but at one point, a few years back, we started describing one player's playing in miraculous terms. (I'm not sure if he'd even posted a sample, I think it was in response to some wiseass remark someone made). Anyway, I remember once saying that his ten hole blow on an F# harp was so pure that it could restart the heart of a dead hummingbird.

I may actually invent a fake harmonica player just so I can come up with creative ways to praise him.

There is simply no reason to explain your greatness. You simply are The Best. If the others don't get it, that's their problem.

You are truly a legend in your own mind....and humble to boot!

Only a real harmonica God would assert that they are the best without providing videos of their playing. Everything I said about your playing and its miraculous effects it has on the substance of reality are true precisely because none of it can be proved.
