How to play guitar like a Rockstar

Chord #3: D

And now we have come to D. Notice the addition of another X. This chord focuses on the lower part of your fret board so it's pretty easy to avoid hitting those top strings when you strum. The best way to switch from C to D is to first take your pinky out of the equation. You don't use it for D. Then take your middle finger, curl it up and put it on the e string. Move your index finger up a string (from D to G). Leave your ring finger right where it is and you'll be all set to rock the D.

The biggest switch you've made yet. Don't panic! Pinky off, ring finger is stationary, put your middle finger on the e string fret 2 and your index on the G string fret 2. Cake right?
