Learned how to Barre Chord?

How long did it take for you to learn barre chords? I was looking over my "diary" and it seems I learned how to barre after 2 months of picking up a guitar. Looking back at it, it's a pretty big achievement. I had piano lessons for 3-4 years if that counts.

I was told from the start to try and play the open E's & A's with every finger but my index. Really helped when learning the troublesome F Major chord

Barre chords never really stumped me. I think it's because I'd been playing for a few months before I actually started trying one, so I was pretty comfortable with basic stuff at that time.

The girl I'm teaching definitely is having problems with them though, I think it's just all dependent on different factors.

I think it took me about two months aswell to finger a barre chord and an other month to be able to stretch my fingers for the "under the bridge chord"

I'm not sure, but I've done 10 hours in one day before before I had calluses. That's pretty extreme and yes my hands were sweaty and fingers hurt but I was rocking it out! The only thing I knew was like G, D, Em, and C chords but still! I was also a huge Guitar Hero fan and playing guitar was a dream of mine!
