"Yes. Just like 6-strings can go beyond what can be done on a 4-string, and just like you can play stuff on a 7- and 8-string guitar that you can't play on a 6. 3-strings do have their limitations, just like any other instrument."

"I prefer 4 strings to the three so I can add a 3rd note or play chords with a 4th or 7th note. You play the usual 1 -5 -1 chords like the 3 stringers and a low 1 for drone note or  go real low to use as a bass string. Lots of options."

I also have some tuned GDGB, which sounds good, but is mostly good for playing in the key of G.
