Topic: Barr chords
I'm still learning so forgive me for a rather dumb question. I am having trouble understanding barr chords. For instance when you do an 'F' (which is hell to do by the way) you barr the 1st fret with your pointing finger and form the E shape with the others....you know...and that makes your barr F. But I've read you can move the shape down (or is it up? towards the hole) the neck, so does it still remain an F, or does it then become another chord? And what makes it an F in the 1st place? And then when you use the other shapes to form other barr chords how do you know what they are? I hope you understand what I mean and I'm hoping someone can explain in an EASY to understand way.
