ABOUT BARRE CHORDS
  BARRE CHORDS are moveable chords, meaning you can use the same finger pattern anywhere on the neck and get a different chord.

Whatever note on the A string your index finger is on, is the name of the barre chord you're playing. 

With this finger pattern, if your index finger is on the "C" note (third fret) of the A string, the barre chord is a "C".

*You may notice all of these barre chords have similarities with some of the open chords, like E Maj, E min, A Maj and A min. This is no accident. I guess you can barre just about any open chord further down the neck for a different chord.
See. Im really *not* a music major
