    Hi, I am Franklin Taggart. I am a guitar player and a guitar teacher and I would like to show you D minor chord. The first finger plays the first fret of the first string. Your middle finger plays the second fret of the third string and your ring finger plays the third fret of the second string. For the D minor chord you will strum the bottom four strings. Thats how you play the D minor chord.
