PDF of Guitar Barre Chords on the 6th String

Above is our guitar Barre Chord chart for root notes on the 6th string. The 6th string Barre Chords may be a more common but the advantage of knowing both 5th and 6th is that you don't have to move your hand around as much, the chords for each key are all right there.

Let say you are playing the blues in A. You can put on a Barre Chord at the 5th fret of the E string. The IV chord or the D chord is just below it on the 5th string , just move down one string to the D string 5th fret and you are in a D chord. The fingering is a little different, check out the 5th String Chart. Slide the hand up the fret board 2 frets to the E note and you have the 5th or V chord or E chord. The blues, I, IV, V or A, D and E, make your 7ths and you have the blues.

If you are a beginner I would check out this book from Amazon, it got a lot of great reviews. Guitar for the Absolute Beginner, Book 1 (Book and DVD) (Amazon affiliate link)
