On a whim I decided to throw a set of flat wounds on the old geetar
Thing is the gosh darned G string is way out of tune although the tuner said it was good - the open chords did sound fine.
That A chord w the root on the 12th fret A string and its octave - the octave note was sour.
I didnt notice but the D / G / B / in the set were lighter gauge than my previous set

Of course I did this before practice .......

Any thoughts or comments ?
