The D major can be a doozy for beginners! First the index is placed on the second fret of the C string, but we put it about halfway towards the fret. Next the middle finger is on the second fret of the G string, almost perpendicular but with a slight bend. Finally, the ring finger is placed on the second fret, this one is kept straight up. The trick to this chord is using just enough finger flesh to get a clear sound without muting other strings.
