Since the normal open G chord contains the notes G, B, and D, then why can't I hit G, B, And D open strings and get an okay sound? I don't ever plan to use this on anything but It should atleast sound right together when played. G and B sound fine but when I add in the open D it sounds very bad. Maybe It's just my distortion or am I missing something?

Just experimenting with notes.

edit: Nevermind. I realized I was hitting the open E instead of G.
