if u bar fret 1, then ring finger on 3 on A string, pinky on 3 on D string, middle finger on 2 on G string.

Edit: thats the major. for the minor, lift ur middle finger
In speed versus emotional playing, i think of an M16 versus an M24. You can have 650 rounds per minute, or one round, one kill. Both should be in your arsenal.

Do you know A major, A minor, E major and E minor?

Those are the 4 main shapes, slide them up a fret, and bar the first fret with your ring finger, you have a barre chord.

If you don't know the notes on your fretboard, then learn them now.

Okay, the strings go like this from highest to lowest:
e
B
G
D
A
E

There are 12 notes in western music,
A, A#/Bb, B, C, C#/Db, D, D#/Eb, E, F, F#G/b, G, G#/Ab.

Going up a fret on the lowest string, E, means you move one semitone, (1 note forward) to F. Moving another fret is F#/Gb, and another fret up is G.

You can work out the rest with this logic.

There is no B# or E# (Cb & Fb).

On top of the stuff above, there are 2 basic shapes you play barre chords in.

the first is the same as an open Emajor chord, barred 1 fret behind it. when you play this on the E string (barred E, then emajor chord shape) It makes a Major Barre, the same as what you barre the E fret on.
When you use the Emajor chord on the a string (barred E&A then Emajor chord shape) it becomes a Minor the same as what you barre the A fret on.

The other is an open A Chord, barred 2 frets behind. On the A string makes a Major.

there are alot more and that probably didnt make sense but in my head thats how i explain it. easier to do with real people with a guitar in thier hands
Hope it helped

simplified guide for what chords you are playing in what position:


Six string root barre chords (or E shape barre chords)...

Barred Fret: 1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10   11   12
Chord:       F   F#  G   G#  A   A#  B   C   C#  D    D#   E

The thirteenth fret starts over at F



Fifth string root barre chords (or A shape barre chords)...

Barred Fret: 1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10   11   12
Chord:       A#  B   C   C#  D   D#  E   F   F#  G    G#   A

The thirteenth fret starts over at A#
