[F] [F(b5)]  

To do this F* chord, instead of doing a full bar with your 1st finger,
use your thumb (marked with T) on the low E string and use your 1st finger only
on the 1st and 2nd strings.
At the last bit before the chord changes, move your 1st finger away from the 2nd string.
This chord is F(b5) (or F(b11), or Fdim5 or whatever)
