Lesson 9.4 – A Minor Barre Chord

In Lesson 7, we learned that to make a major chord a minor chord, you lower the third note of the scale one semitone (or fret). In the moveable barre shape with the root on the 6th string, the third tone is on the G string (3rd string).

To change this chord to a minor chord, lift your middle finger off of the neck. When making new chords for the first time, it is always a good idea to check for “duds.” In this case, it is important that the barred finger takes over on the G string because that string must sound to change the chord to a minor chord.
