To play the Dsus chord, place the index finger on the 2nd fret of the C-string and middle finger on the 2nd fret of the E-string. Let the other strings ring open.
The Dsus chord contains the notes D-G-A.
In this case, the "sus" in the chord name, which means suspended is referring to a "sus4" note.
To build a Dsus chord, take the suspended fourth chord formula (1-4-5) and apply it to the D major scale (D, E, F#, G, A, B, C#).
Identify the first, fourth, and fifth scale degrees in the D major scale which are D-G-A, which gives you a Dsus chord.
