Awesome Guitar Chord: D/F# [2 0 0 2 3 2]

If you already know how to play D Major, then today's awesome guitar chord should be pretty easy for you. This new chord is called D/F# and the only additions you'll need is to place your thumb on the 6th string, 2nd fret and also play the open A string (the 5th string). If you're not used to using your thumb on a fret, it may take a little while for this positioning to feel comfortable.

D/F# will give you a deep and rich sounding D Major. It's called D/F# because your thumb is fretting the F# note on the E string (the 6th string).

How to Play D/F# on the Guitar:
  • Place Your Left Index Finger on the 3rd String, 2nd Fret
  • Place Your Left Middle Finger on the 1st String, 2nd Fret
  • Place Your Left Ring Finger on the 2nd String, 3rd Fret
  • Place Your Left Thumb on the 6th String, 2nd Fret
  • Strings 4 and 5 are used in this D/F# chord, but are not fretted - they are called open strings

I've found that whenever I play a D Major chord, my default position is to use a D/F# chord. I prefer the sound of this chord over a regular D chord. But, of course, it's best to experiment and listen which version you prefer to play!
