Hi, I'm totally new to playing and reading music and have a question....
How do you play this?

I think it's A maj - well, so chordbook.com told me

E---0-----------
A---2-----------
D---X----------
G---4-----------
B---5----------
E---0---------

I've probably got it wrong still but I'm hoping you get the point...do you just miss out the D string (X) and play the rest? If so, how the heck do you do that?!

Thanks very much!

it's a dead note/ muted note, you just make sure your lightly touching the string with a part or one of your fretting finger's and it'll stop the note from ringing out

oh you mean that thing I do most of the time by mistake?! Cool, I can do that.
Thanks.
