This gives you a beautiful low open string root. Well use several different fingerings for the D chord. The one I most often use is made by barring across three strings on the 2nd fret with the first finger, and the second finger gets the 2nd string 3rd fret. This standard D shape gives you the option to play the 4th string open, or grab the 4th fret F# note with your third finger. You also have the option to play the 5th string open, or grab the 5th fret with your 5th finger.
