Does anyone knows how C#/D ( X40232 ) can be played in a different way? It doesn't matter if it's not exactly the same same.
I'm playing C#/D with this fingering; ( 1 = index finger, 2 = middle finger etc. )


E X
a 4
d X
g 1
b 3
e 2

I'm struggling with my 4th finger, the one on the c# note.

That's actually D/C#, not C#/D. But yeah, you might find yawn's way easier, you can play it by barring the 7th fret with your 3rd finger.

But with this one you still get a big stretch right? From 4th to 7th fret?

Thanks for the help. I think I can handle it with the new chord or I might just practice some more with the other.

You can also use your thumb to fret the root. Thats how I would play it.

Gear:
Partscaster/Tele into a bunch of pedals, a Maz 18 head, and a Z Best cab.

Try playing it in the same position (X40232) but with this fingering:

Grab a regular D chord, but with your index finger doing a barre on the GBe strings on the 2nd fret, placing your middle finger on the 3rd fret on the B string.
Then you can easily use your ring finger to play the C# root note. You also don´t have to use your pinky, which is the weakest finger.

It´s useful to keep that fingering in mind for the regular D chord as well; sometimes it´s easier to play it like that, depending on the fingerings that precede/follow it. It also gives you more reach towards the higher frets.

That's actually D/C#

That's not much of a stretch :-/

I like the ideas of LKW and Roamingbard13, never thought about it in that way.
Thank you!
