There are two notes on the third string (or G string) of the guitar in first position - G and A. Here is a diagram of how to play these notes on the guitar:
Left Hand Fingering
Right Hand Fingering
To play these notes with your right hand, pluck the 3rd string with your i finger, m finger, a finger, or any combination of these three fingers. For instance, you could repeat the i finger, or you could alternate i-m, m-a, etc. However, you should not use the thumb (p) to play on the 3rd string (except in some few special circumstances).
You can play with either rest stroke, or free stroke in the right hand.
The diagram below shows the third string notes of the guitar written in guitar sheet music notation and in guitar tablature notation.
