Chapter 1: (05:29) Mini Minor Barre Chords Warm Up
Before moving on with the lesson, be sure to review and practice the following:
- Warm-up the hands.
- Stretch the wrists.
- Play the major and minor open chords.
- Warm up your strumming muscles by relaxing the wrists and letting the pick flow over the strings.
- Play the E major chord in the "new" way and play the type 1 barre chords.
- Play the A major chord in the "new" way and play the type 2 barre chords.
- Practice the "slanting A" technique.
- Practice the type 1 minor barre chords.
- Practice the type 2 minor barre chords.
- Play all of the type 1 mini-barre chords.
- Play all of the type 2 mini-barre chords.
So we've been focusing on playing the miniature versions of major barre chords or what I like to call mini-barre chords, right? But what about the minor chord versions? Let's take a look at those now!

Type 1 Minor Chords: Mini-barres
Just as there are mini versions of major chords, there are mini versions of the minor chords that can make playing them easier. Follow me through these steps:

Here is the type 1 Fm chord:

Fm
E_1_
B_1_
G_1_
D_3_
A_3_
E_1_

And the mini-barre version of it:

Fm
E_1_
B_1_
G_1_
D_3_
A_X_
E_X_

Here is the type 1 Gm barre chord:

Gm
E_3_
B_3_
G_3_
D_5_
A_5_
E_3_

And the mini-barre version of it:

Gm
E_3_
B_3_
G_3_
D_5_
A_x_
E_x_

Notice how I just removed the finger placement on the low E-string, and the placement on the A string. Be careful though to make sure and push down hard on the G, B and high E-strings or you may not get a clean and un-muted sound from the chord. Even though you are not playing a traditional barre chord, this type of chord still takes some hand strength to play correctly.

*Note: as mentioned in previous lessons, when fretting less strings, it is also sometimes necessary to strum less strings in order to avoid a dissonant sounding chord. Watch me in the video for more tips on how to do this effectively.
Chapter 2: (01:02) Exercise Exercise 1
Play the type 1 mini-barre minor chords all the way up the neck starting with Fm. Play this strum: down down up or "down down-up" and play each of the mini-barre minors as far up the neck as you can go. Remember to pay attention to how many strings you are strumming and to the overall sound of the chord. Adjust your strum and/or fingering to produce a cleaner and more beautiful sound. Also, don't forget to relax your wrist and let the pick flow over the strings.
Chapter 3: (03:02) Type II Mini Barre Chords Changing type II bar chords into mini-barre chords is just as simple as the type I minors. Follow me through the following steps concerning the type II mini-barre minors.

Here is the Type II Bm chord:

Bm
E_2_
B_3_
G_4_
D_4_
A_2_
E_x_

and the mini-barre version of it (example #1):

Bm
E_2_
B_3_
G_4_
D_4_
A_x_
E_x_

Or even simpler (example #2):

Bm
E_2_
B_3_
G_4_
D_x_
A_x_
E_x_

And here is the type II Cm chord:

Cm
E_3_
B_4_
G_5_
D_5_
A_3_
E_x__

And the mini-barre version of it (example #1):

Cm
E_3_
B_4_
G_5_
D_5_
A_x_
E_x_

Or even simpler (example #2):

Cm
E_3_
B_4_
G_5_
D_x_
A_x_
E_x_

It's just that simple! You can play this chord by placing your first finger on the high E-string, your second finger on the B-string, your third on the D-string, and your pinky directly beneath it on the G-string (example 1). Or you can play the simplest version by placing your first finger on the high E-string on the 3rd fret, your second finger on the B-string on the fourth fret and your third finger on the G-string on the fifth fret (example 2). Once again, be aware that you will need to shorten your strum and play fewer strings in order to produce a sweet sounding chord regardless of whether you play example 1 or 2.

Exercise 2
Play all of the type II mini-barre minor chords all the way up the neck beginning with Bm. Don't forget to pay attention to where your half and whole steps belong. Play with this strum: down down down down or the ever-popular "down down-up down." Relax your wrist and breathing while you strum.
Chapter 4: (02:49) Final Exercise Exercise 3
Play type I mini-barre Gm and then play type II mini-barre Cm, both on the third fret. Notice what your first finger has to do to change and accommodate the two different types of chords. Try this change with type I mini-barre Am and type II mini-barre Dm both on the fifth fret. Again, feel the difference in your hand and the changes that your hand muscles have to make to form the chords properly and beautifully. Try this exercise back and forth up the neck paying attention to where the half and whole steps are. Say the chord names aloud as you do this exercise.

These lessons are great. This is the first time you lost me in 14 lessons. Thanks much

Mark, as a kid I took guitar lessons for three years. I have learned at least 20 times more from you and I am on lesson 13 only. Thanks.

This whole approach is just excellent. Thanks, man.

Hi Mark, Fm in type 2 shape is wrong in supplemental. Love the lessons!

Hey Mark! Could you play the minor mini-barre chord with only the top three strings and drop the third finger off the D string?

jeffmack44jeffmack44 replied on June 22nd, 2012

Hi Mark, Typo on the Supplemenatl with the mini Fm showing it starting on the 1st fret instead of the 8th.

julgregjulgreg replied on January 15th, 2012

Hi Mark. I am enjoying your lessons so far. Keep up the good work!

mymuddybootsmymuddyboots replied on August 16th, 2011

Hey Mark, I've been watching your lessons from the very beginning and I love the lessons! On the last part of this lesson though where you talked about keeping type 1 and type 2 mini barre chords separate I got confused. What is the whole idea behind type 1 and type 2? What makes a mini barre chord type 1 or type 2?

Mark.LincolnMark.Lincoln replied on August 31st, 2011

Hey boots! Type 1 barres are E shaped barres, so that shape is hidden in there as well. Type two barres are A shaped barres so the mini's also include those shapes but....when you miniaturize the chords it can be hard to spot shapes so you need to really learn them thoroughly...does that help? Mark

Mark.LincolnMark.Lincoln replied on August 20th, 2011

Hey Muddy! Type I barre chords are barres that have the E shape, Type II's are ones that have the A shape. Watch the lesson again and watch how I "miniaturize" the barre chords. Then, message me back if you still don't understand, ok? Mark

dstorey615dstorey615 replied on July 27th, 2011

hi mark, have been keeping up with your lessons, they are brilliant and very helpful!! im just having one problem recently in the Am shaped barre chords mostly with leaving the top string unbarred and still making the chord sound right, any tips? thanks, Dan

Mark.LincolnMark.Lincoln replied on August 8th, 2011

Thats a good question Dan and really there are two schools of thought on this: 1) Just barre over the top of the low E string since that note (lets say Bm for example) is usually part of the chord construction anyway and is present in another area of that chord. So it's usually acceptable to simply play that note anyway. or 2) You can just barre the A string and leave the low E alone. It's simply a matter of choice here but either way works:) ML

brandtjbrandtj replied on May 17th, 2011

This is a great lesson! It's fun to learn different ways to play the same chords.

nielsworrellnielsworrell replied on December 4th, 2010

Hey mark, is making the mini minor barre chords really necessary? I actually find the normal barre chords easier to play.

Mark.LincolnMark.Lincoln replied on December 4th, 2010

Hi Niels how are you? Is it neccessary to learn mini barres? I think the more chords, and forms and different positions that you know, the better off you are and the more flexible player you will become. If you're happy with using barre chords right now that's great but I would still continue learning other forms anyway. Mark

Mark.LincolnMark.Lincoln replied on May 24th, 2009

Hey Jay thanks for writing in and for the feedback as well! Keep rockin' my friend! Mark

Hey Mark. Thanks for the great lesson. I can see how knowing these will beneficial.

About Mark Lincoln View Full Biography Mark Lincoln was born in S. California but was raised near Portland Oregon in a town called Beaverton. When he was twelve years old, he began his journey into the realm of the creative by composing poetry and was later published in a journal called "In Dappled Sunlight." He wrote for four years until his older sister blessed him with his first guitar, an old beat-up nylon stringed classical guitar. Mark played that guitar for five years, continuing to compose his own lyrics and starting the process of matching his own words with chords that he was learning on the guitar. He learned to play chords from his friends and from music books that he both bought and borrowed. Mark cited his four biggest influences, at that point at least, as The Who, Led Zeppelin, Jethro Tull, The Rolling Stones.

Mark cites his most current influences as Radiohead, U2, older music by REM, and Peter Gabriel amongst others. He performs with two acoustic guitars, one being a six-string M-36 Martin with a three-pieced back for increased bass response, and a Guild Twelve-string which is his most recent acquisition. Mark is fond of saying that the twelve-string guitar is better because you get two guitars for the price of one, but he still plays his Martin equally as much and with the same passion.

Mark ended up in Fort Collins Colorado where he currently lives, works as a Marriage and Family Therapist, and continues to write, teach and perform music. He currently performs with a group called "Black Nelson" as well as with a number of other seasoned professional musicians including his cousin David, a virtuoso lead-guitar player. Mark has performed in many of the smaller venues in Denver and Boulder, as well as some of the larger ones including the Fox Theatre, The Boulder Theatre, Herman's Hideaway, and also at The Soiled Dove where he opened for Jefferson Starship as a soloist. Some of Mark's originals are also available for your listening pleasure on MySpace.

"I feel like a 12 year old kid with a new guitar!"
 

I am 66 years young and I still got it! I would have never known this if it had not been for Jamplay! I feel like a 12 year old kid with a new guitar! Ha! I cannot express enough how great you're website is! It is for beginners and advanced pickers! I am an advanced picker and thought I had lost it but thanks to you all, I found it again! Even though I only play by ear, I have been a member a whopping whole two weeks now and have already got Brent's country shuffle and country blues down and of course with embellishments. Thank you all for your wonderful program!

"With Jamplay I can fit in a random session when I have time and I can go at my own pace"
 

I'm a fifty eight year old newbie who owns a guitar which has been sitting untouched in a corner for about seven years now. Last weekend I got inspired to pick it up and finally learn how to play after watching an amazing Spanish guitarist on TV. So, here I am. I'm starting at the beginning with Steve Eulberg and I couldn't be happier (except for the sore fingers :) Some day I'm going to play like Steve! I'm self employed with a hectic schedule. With Jamplay I can fit in a random session when I have time and I can go at my own pace, rewinding and replaying the videos until I get it. This is a very enjoyable diversion from my work yet I still feel like I'm accomplishing something worthwhile. Thanks a lot, Greg
