Gm/D Chord (G minor Over D) – 10 Ways to Play on the Guitar

The Gm/D chord is a G minor chord, with the D (the 5th) as the bass note.

The chord is also referred to as G minor over D, or Gm ‘slash’ D, or simply, G minor with a D in the bass.

Technically, the G minor chord with the D in the bass is a second inversion G minor chord.
