well, at the beginning, yes, but if you start to look for patterns and relating things to other positions on the guitar, you'll start to get a grip on this stuff.

I am no expert but you can take every chord , place your fingers right and hard on each fret hold down and just strum..
its also good to be able to change from on chord to another fast.. how?

well strumm a chord so evrey note is clearly hearable and that they alla ring smooth.

after you can handle this chord alone do the same with the another and then try to strum once on one chord and slowly move to another to also strum once and slow

do this again and again

You have to build some finger muscles by practicing. I don't know if this will help for you but it sure helped me a lot. I found that by doing finger excersises and practicing scales i was able to play barre chords a lot better. Try it and after awhile if you see an improvement let me know.

^The gear is just an accessory to your sound. With practice and time, you will find your unique style and play much better.
