So, how about D major on your guitar, right? You may see people try the D major in different ways. Some do it with only two fingers, that is OK, it sounds the same, but with three fingers it is a bit easier.

Your first finger is going to the third string, second fret, and then your second finger is going on the first string, second fret. Your third finger is going on the second string, third fret. With this guitar chord you have to be careful when you strum, as you only hit the last four strings. It might be a bit off in the beginning, but that’s OK.
