I'm sure I've seen Sharron Shannon has actually gone so far as to remove some bass buttons from her box ( Castagnari Tommy ) which illustrates the difference in approach between English and ITM.

I don't think she removed them, I think they just fell off.

thanks for your "likes" chaps.  Good point about two cultures divided by a common instrument.  Visually identical, but when you try to get a tune out of them, just about everything you've learned on the one makes absolutely no sense on the other. 

I stand in awe of people who display high skills on B/C and D/G concurrently.

Agreed on all, and I'd add G/C to that. Entirely different worlds.
