    Default D7sus4

    Well I have only come across this chord once before and now here it come again, in Joey's Daily ukulele challenge...
    Can someone tell me the best way to finger this chord? It just doesn't sound clean and good to me, the way I am doing it, maybe it's my new Bb! ha..

    Thanks!

    Try one of these:

    2233 (you can bar 2) or 0253 or 5755 (bar 5)

    I use 2030 simply broken down the D7 I use is 2020 suspending the 4th note of the D scale (G - 3rd fret of the 2nd string) to make the sus4 then this chord should resolve to the D7 where the G drops back to the 3rd of the chord (F# - 2nd fret of the second string) I play the D7 with my first finger on the 4th string second fret and my 2nd finger on the second fret of the second string then I use my third finger to add the suspended 4 (G - 3rd fret second string). Alternate fingering for me is to use my 2nd, third and fourth fingers instead of 1,2 and three. I hope this helps.

    I use 2233. I barre the 22 with my index and the 33 with middle. It's a nice closed chord. It's the same fingering as F9/6 and resolves Gm7 - C13 nicely.

    I'd go with the 2233 as well, which fingers to use changes depending on the other chords. Does that work with your arrangement?

    Yep...I do the same 2233. Bar the 2nd fret with the index finger and bar only the 33 with your middle finger.

    That's pretty simple, then, just pull the 33 finger back to only the first string and you'll have a 2223 D7
    I'm not entirely convinced that it is possible to polish a turd. However, if one were to accomplish that feat one would still have a turd, and one all the more noticeable for being shiny.

    Just got frustrated as I can with the song- I was trying to play and these chords.. grrr.. I can't stand when I get this frustrated.. I used to 'pump' away at the player piano when I was a kid to this song.. I thought this song would be a no brainer... I will try again tomorrow. Sigh.. my uke is resting now...

    I don't know if this will help, but some times I think of similar chords as a passing chord or accent chord and play it accordingly, it seems to fit better. What song are you working on?
