    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?

    Justine, For E major, there is no gap between the barre and fingers but for A major, you have 2nd fret open. why??

    Justin _ I keep muting either the the 1st? or 2nd string

    I play the Bb (Bd,D,F) with the moved A? shape, until it becomes impossible higher up the board due to space, generally with a full barre across, all 6 strings, then you can play Bb/F or Bb, and the bottom string(F). The guy who teaches my kids is able to do this shape or the movable A shape. but his finger is so flexible/deformed he’s able to barre the 3,4,5, without touching the bottom string.

    Hey. What do you? think about using the pinky instead of the 3rd finger?

    You? are great Justin. This really kicks my theoretic understanding off!

    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. ?

    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.

    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.
