How to Play an A Flat / G Sharp Minor Barre Chord on Guitar

Learn how to play an A Flat / G Sharp Minor barre chord in this guitar lesson from Howcast.

"We’ve come to G sharp minor, or A flat minor, same chord. We’re gonna take an E shape, an E minor shape to be exact. And we’re gonna move that to the 4th fret. That’s where G sharp is, or A flat. And I’m gonna barre there, and I’m gonna have my minor chord here, my minor shape. And there you go, there’s G sharp or A flat minor.

And then of course I can do the A style of that. So I’m taking an A minor shape, twisting it around so I have my first finger free. And this time I have to go all the way to the 11th fret. That’s where G sharp is. So I have G sharp, or the 11th fret barred, and I have an A minor chord. So it turns it into G sharp minor or A flat minor.
