Now we've come to the minor chords. So, here's A minor,right. So, this time instead of E major, of course, I have to use E minor. So, I'm going to use my ring finger and my pinky to make E minor and then I'm going to bring that all the way to the fifth fret here. And you can see my bar, right. There's my bar. And you can see here still there's E minor. So, this is A minor turns into, right. And another way to do it is I can take an A minor shape,right. A little confusing, but it's possible to make it as a bar code as well. And this time I'm going to switch that around so I have my first finger free, right. So what am I doing? I have my second finger on the second string, first fret. I have my third finger on the fourth string, third fret. And my pinky here is on the third string, second fret leaving my first finger free. And I'm going to move that all the way to the twelve fret,double dots. And here it is A minor. So, I have A minor as an A shape and an A minor as an E shape. A minor barre chord.
