    it's probably just crap string quality. I assume you mean the string winding itself right? not the windings done at the tuner?

    does it start unwinding from a particular point?

    yea i m talkin about the string winding bro....
    i checked with all the dealers...they said the quality is reasonable...
    Dunno why it keeps on repeatin again b again...
    the sound from the third string becomes hopeless....
    i guess one reason mite be that the third string has thin windings as compared to the 4th,5th n 6th..!!

    it starts to unwind near the third n fourth fret....probably i play on dese frets more often n due to contionous chords switching!!

    the third string is the most commonly used string hen playing chords..even i experience the same problem with my guitar string..though not as frequently as u experience..but compared to all the other strings, the 3rd string gets worn out the first.

    there are a few possibilites:
    1)You have a bad fretjob on your guitar and those frets are a tad sharp.
    2)Your strings are of a cheapo brand(which I suspect)
    3)Some people have higher finger acidity. Clean your hands before you play.
