The D7 Chord

And How to Play it With Rolls

The fingering of the D7 chord is very similar to that of the C chord. Let's take a look at how this chord is constructed. Using the C chord as your reference point, take your left hand ring finger off of the fretboard entirely, keep your index finger where it is, and place your middle finger behind the 2nd fret 3rd string. This two note chord is a D7 chord.
