    I play the Bb (Bd,D,F) with the stirred A shape, until it becomes impracticable higher up the board due to space, generally with a full barre across, all 6 strings, then you can play Bb/F or Bb, and the bottom string(F). The guy who teaches my kids is able to do this shape or the movable A shape. but his fiddle with is so bendable/deformed he’s able to barre the 3,4,5, without sad the bottom string.

  5. JonosTrainVideos says:

    Justin _ I keep muting either the the 1st or 2nd string

  6. JonosTrainVideos says:

    U R Fantastic – So many guitar teachers on the net – but u r the only one I have seen that really builds a foundation that a student can build on.

  7. W0rkingClassHero says:

    Justine, For E major, there is no gap linking the barre and fingers but for A major, you have 2nd fret open. why?

  8. faeriegirl25 says:

  10. Zeprit says:

    For the ones who can’t manage to do it with 1 vinger,
    I really use 2 fingers to press the D G B snares, just add your pinky fiddle with. to mute the B
