It's always better to have more if needed or not than to need and not have. Hahaha

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.

You are correct Jose, in my opinion.  Here are two videos I posted to YouTube talking about this.

It is good to have you for a friend, Jose.   Yes on the 4 strings.  I one tuned DGBE like the 4 small strings of a standard six string guitar.  I can play it in 5 keys plus use a capo.

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