Okay. Lets talk about barre chords and how to find any barre code you want. Now, there is many ways to do this, but we're going to use a couple of ways, right now. And the first way is going to be with the E shapes. So, what does that mean. I'm taking every form of E that we know. So, we have E major, E minor,E seven, E minor seven, and also E major seven. And I can use that to make any chord I want, right. So, lets talk about makeing G sharp minor seven. Okay, I just think of the craziest one I can, right. So, what am I going to do? I'm going to find G sharp. So, here's E, right. We know that E and F is only one fret apart. We know that F to G is two frets. And one more makes G sharp. So, there I found G sharp. And now I'am going to use the minor seven shape. If you remember that's only one finger. And there you go, G sharp minor seven. Lets find B flat major seven. So, here's my E, right. Here's my F. Here's my G. A, B now we need B flat, right, so I'm just going to flatten this note meaning I lower it one fret. And then if you remember our major seven shape, our E major seven shape. I use that and there you go. There's B flat major seven. After a while you get to remember where they all are and it becomes easier and easier. At first, when I was a kid I had to do the same thing. I had to start, okay, where's B flat? Okay, E, F, G, A, B flat major seven, but you'll get it. That's how you can make any barre code with the E shapes.
