How To Play The D Chord On Guitar

In this lesson, you are going to learn how to play the D chord on guitar. Now, of the earliest chords that I teach beginner students, the D chord is often times difficult in the beginning. Hopefully before starting this lesson on the D chord, you have spent some time working on your Em and D 6/9 Chords as well as your easier C and G chords.

If you feel you are still very shaky on those chords, then I would hold off on the D chord for now. Try and get your chord changes to at least 40 bpm before moving on to the D chord. Also keep with practicing your Spider Exercise 1 as a warm-up.

Below is the video on how to play a D chord on guitar.
