Dude, what's sissy about using a G chromatic to play Irish music? As I recall, there's an extended piece by Brendan Power in the Harp-L archives that discusses using a G chromatic with slide turned upside down (to make the accidentals easier to get) to play Irish music.

One of the big lessons of the blues is: get it any way you can. In my iopinion, that's a good lesson to carry into every part of one's life. And in particular, I never ceased to be amazed when people apologize for doing anything the easy way. Life and music are hard enough as it is.
