I think there may be some wording issues in this segment. Use the 4th finger on the thinnest string? Shouldn’t it read " The index finger should be on the thinnest string"?
6. THE D MINOR CHORD
The Dm can be a bit tricky for many of you, but practice will help you out. Take a look at the D Minor diagram:
- I recommend you use the 4th finger to play the thinnest string! It’s ok to use the 3rd things, but you should make your pinky stronger, and that’s an excellent opportunity to do so. It also brings chord change benefits.
- Don’t play the thickest two strings at all. It just sounds wrong!
