How to Play Any Barre Chord in E Form on a Guitar

Learn how to play any barre chord in E Form in this guitar lesson from Howcast.


Okay. Lets talk about barre chords and how to find any barre code you want. Now, there is many ways to do this, but we're going to use a couple of ways, right now. And the first way is going to be with the E shapes. So, what does that mean. I'm taking every form of E that we know. So, we have E major, E minor,E seven, E minor seven, and also E major seven. And I can use that to make any chord I want, right. So, lets talk about makeing G sharp minor seven. Okay, I just think of the craziest one I can, right. So, what am I going to do? I'm going to find G sharp. So, here's E, right. We know that E and F is only one fret apart. We know that F to G is two frets. And one more makes G sharp. So, there I found G sharp. And now I'am going to use the minor seven shape. If you remember that's only one finger. And there you go, G sharp minor seven. Lets find B flat major seven. So, here's my E, right. Here's my F. Here's my G. A, B now we need B flat, right, so I'm just going to flatten this note meaning I lower it one fret. And then if you remember our major seven shape, our E major seven shape. I use that and there you go. There's B flat major seven. After a while you get to remember where they all are and it becomes easier and easier. At first, when I was a kid I had to do the same thing. I had to start, okay, where's B flat? Okay, E, F, G, A, B flat major seven, but you'll get it. That's how you can make any barre code with the E shapes.
