To play the Daug chord, place the little finger on the 3rd fret of the top g-string, middle finger on the 2nd fret of the C-string, ring finger on the 2nd fret of the E-string, and index finger on the 1st fret of the bottom A-string.
The Daug chord contains the notes D-F#-A#.
To build a Daug chord, take the augmented triad formula (1-3-#5) and apply it to the D major scale (D, E, F#, G, A, B, C#).
Identify the first, third, and fifth scale degrees in a D major scale which are D-F#-A.
Because the fifth scale degree is a "#5" (said "sharp five") raise the A note a half step to A# making the chord augmented with the notes D-F#-A#.
