Watch the Major & Minor 3rds online guitar lesson by Robbie Calvo from Double Stop Chops
In this section, we'll move our ideas along the length of each string set to hear the effect of major and minor 3rds at different pitches. My preference is the sound of 3rds on the G/B string set and the D/G string set. I also like the top strings, but find them a little less warm and friendly sounding. To my ears, 3rds become a bit muddy sounding on the lower 3 strings, so I typically don't use them too much, if at all.
