  1. For the ones who can’t manage to do it with 1 vinger,
    I actually use 2 fingers to press the D G B snares, just add your pinky finger. to mute the B

  2. U R Great – So many guitar teachers on the net – but u r the only one I have seen that really builds a foundation that a student can build on.

  3. For the same reason that if you play an open E major chord there is no “gap” between the guitar’s nut and your fingers (well, the first finger), but on the open A major chord there is. It’s all to do with where the notes are on the fretboard. When you barre a chord you are essentially turning your first finger into a new nut for the guitar.

  4. I wouldn’t recommend using your pinky. Hopefully, you’ll want to progress from just playing these shapes, and using your pinky on the A shape barre will tie your fingers up and limit what you can do at a later date. It’s not a good habit to get into, because you’ll have to change it when you do move on. It’s not easy to play these at first, but stick at it, it will come, and you’ll be glad you learned the shape Justin is showing you. Hope that helps.

  5. Valid point. I actually point a lot of my students to Justin’s site, since I think he’s a fantastic teacher, and can reinforce what I’m teaching them, but the downside is that Justin can’t see what you’re doing to correct any faults, or just give you one to one advice and encouragement. There’s room for both. It’s a great thing Justin has been doing for years now, and especially for people who can’t afford lessons, but don’t discount private lessons, they have their place too.

  6. Justin I am a little confused, is this a Barred A major or A # major? if your finger is touching the 5 string first fret would that be a A sharp or am I wrong. I though the note had to be and A? I love your lessons I have learned so much just a little confused on this one

  7. it’s a bit confusing – while showing the “double-barre” variation, why is he saying that the first string has to be muted? I thought first string has to played by the other barre-ing finger. does he mean it is “OK” to be muted?

    1. It’s muted because it’s almost impossible to play the high E using this chord shape. it does not make much of a difference to the chord itself, in fact I find it sounding better.
