D Major Chord

D Major Chord

There’s a few different ways to play the D major chord. The first one we’ll talk about is the traditional way, the other being another way you may want to try it, especially if you might be having trouble playing it in the begining.

Option 1 for playing D Major Chord  – Do not play on the 6th or 5th string, but start on the 4th string open. Then put your 1st finger on the 3rd string, 2nd fret…put your 3rd finger on the 2nd string, 3rd fret, and your last finger will be your 2nd finger on the 1st string, 2nd fret.

Option 2 for playing D Major Chord – Do not play on the 6th or 5th string, but start on the 4th string open, barre your 1st finger on the 2nd fret all the way across the 3 strings, while using your 2nd finger on the 2nd string, 3rd fret.
