This video goes over how to play a D Sharp Minor / E Flat Minor (min) guitar chord.
For a D Sharp Minor / E Flat Minor chord:
- 1st finger on the 1st fret on the D string.
- 2nd finger on the 2nd fret on the High E string.
- 3rd finger on the 3rd fret on the G string.
- 4th finger on the 4th fret on the B string.
- Play the bottom four strings. (All strings except the low E string, and the A string.)
This is a fairly difficult chord to play for many reasons. The first reason is because you are using all your fingers and you have to spread your fingers amongst 4 frets in order to pull off the chord. Secondly getting all the frets to make sound is tough too.
I would not recommend trying to play the d sharp minor or e flat minor chord unless you have been playing guitar for a while.
Once you get the d sharp minor chord down try playing it in transition with other chords. When you are able to do this successfully that is when you have truly mastered how to play a new chord.
A tip that I recommend for your first finger (the one on the 1st fret on the D String) – bar the 1st fret from the High E string to the D string. It gives your fingers more balance to push down the rest of the frets in order to pull off the D Sharp Minor chord successfully.
