Bar chords are something that are used more in rock music. They are a little difficult for a beginner to get but they are still fun to play. And you can play them anywhere on the guitar.
This is a G bar chord, you can tell what chord it is by what your first finger is on.
Start with placing you finger along the entire fret, all you really have to focus on is the top string but still keep it bared.
Now take your ring finger and place it two frets down and one string Down.
To some people it will be easier to use the pinky for the second part, feel free to do that.
You can also play down one string, this would be a C chord. Here, you could mute the top string by just touching it with the first finger.
And you can go down again, when I said it can be played anywhere, I literally meant ANYWHERE. Just experiment with it and find what you like.
Minor bar chords are harder and easier in it's own ways. It looks difficult to hold but it's no to bad.
Like the major, you'll start with baring the fret.
Now place your ring finger where you would in a major, but don't bar it, then place the pinky underneath it.
Finally, place your middle finer in between the two parts, on the fourth string down from the top of the bar.
Again, you can play this anywhere, just mess around with it to find what you like.
Those are Major and Minor bar chords. It will take time to get used to though, just keep practicing. (☞ﾟ∀ﾟ)☞ You got it! Good luck, remember if you have any questions don't hold back.
