    Hi, I am Franklin Taggart and I am a guitar teacher and a guitar player. I would like to show you a D minor 7th chord. Your first finger is going to play two strings simultaneously. Its going to play the first string and the second string, both on the first fret. Your middle finger is going to play on the second fret of the third string and youre going to strum the bottom four strings. And thats how you play a D minor 7th chord.
