A Major Chord: The A Chord

The A Major Barre is the ‘F’ Shape played on the 5th fret.

This means that your 1st finger should be flat across all the strings at the 5th fret whilst your thumb should be around halfway down the back of the neck of the guitar.

This will allow you to fret the 2nd, 3rd and 4th fingers and increase your ability to bridge the strings.
