use more than one finger
barre the low e and a strings with you second finger, hold the d string with your ring finger, use your index finger for the g string, and pinky for b string.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

use your thumb as well if that chord is correct.

you do have 5 fingers including the thumb
song stuck in my head today

hahah, that's possible.

if it is a d9 upside down, barre with your ring finger, get that fourth fret with your index and hit the root with your middle

that looks like a chord from that song by colbie caillat called bubbly. i guess he's too manly to say he likes the song but i would have to agree with ONEBLACKENED on how to finger that chord. by the way dude if it is that song its ok to like it.

capo the 4th fret and use your fingers on the 5's

Unfortuneatly there are other components to the song that prevent the use of a capo.

It is sorry, and I thought that that would be the most logical way to play it, but I'm not used to barring with my ring finger, so I was hoping there was an easier way to do it. My only trouble with that method is that when I barre with my ring finger it's hard to reachover with my middle finger without muting the d string. Thanks though. I editted the original post so that it's no longer upside down.

I was actually looking to play Banana Pancakes by Jack Johnson; however most of the tabs I've seen don't include the use of that chord, which is used in the recording from the album "In Between Dreams".

So does anyone know a way to play the D9 easier than the way that BluesLP1990 described? Thanks.

i like the way you completely ignored the other posts.
play it all strings open except for the low e string.

Well, ignoring the chord and just playing it open works, but it won't help you get any better at playing that chord shape, which is very common in blues and such.

The easiest way to play it is to barre the G,B,and e strings with your ring finger, hit the D string with your index, and reach over with your middle finger to hit the A string. It takes some practice to get it to sound right, but once you do it sounds very good.

I suppose if your hands are big enough, you could reach over the neck with your thumb and hit the A string with your thumb, or just ignore the root all together, as the chord sounds fine without it.
