Now let's check out another version of a major barre chord. This one has the root-note on the 5th string, and it is also referred to as an A major shaped barre chord. Aside from the 1st finger barre, you can either fret the rest of this "voicing" with your 1st, 2nd and 3rd finger or you can barre those 3 notes with your 3rd finger. I will be doing the latter.
