Often times I notice that a plain 3rd string has a lame sound to it on a lot of chords. Is it a good idea for rhythm guitar players to have a wounded 3rd string?
yeah man, go for it
Depends what you mean by 'lame' sound. The main reason people get wound G-strings is because they stay in tune better than plain g strings.
yeah go for it for rythm i usually use a heavier gauge string anyway with a wound g
