What chord are you meant to play when it says something like "f/d" or something. Should I be playing the first or second one?

You play the first chord with the second letter as the base note (so it's an inversion).

F/D would be F major with D in the bass.

I hope it isn't the other way around

You play the first chord, with the letter behind the slash being your substituted bass note.

So with a chord like D/F#, you would play a D chord but sneak in an F# below everything else.

I'd like to add; Every inversion is a slash chord, but not every slash chord is an inversion.
