Then it’s time to learn D minor.

D minor guitar chord is your first finger on the first string at first fret. The second finger will go on the third string, second fret, and then your ring-finger need a little bit of a stretch to go all the way to the second string and third fret. A little tricky, and you also have to be carefully with the strumming to only hit the last four.

If you hit the other strings, it is OK, as those notes are already in the chord. It sounds a little funny if you hit all six strings when you do the D minor, so try to only hit the last four.
