Be warned, if you're playing sitting down, don't write a song with it until you know you can play it standing up, haha. Been there too many times.

A small excerpt of how chords are formed TS. Might sparkle you interest.

Chords follow a system of adding a 3rd interval when expanding the chord.

Goes as followed:
     
3rd note up in the key
 /   \    
C, D, E, F, G, A, B, C


And continuing with this 3rd interval leap..

C, E, G = Major
C, E, G, B = Major 7th
C, E, G, B, D = Major 9th
C, E, G, B, D, F = Major 11th
C, E, G, B, D, F, A = Major 13th

After the major 13 chord every note of the major scale is used, and thus there the extensions stop.

Then you have the alteration series which are (but not limited to) the chords above with some or multiple intervals "altered" by a half step.

For example: Cmaj7#11

Alterations tend to work better with dominant chords due to dissonance factors, but that's for another time.

The shapes require you to exert more pressure on the strings in order to complete the barre and so you need to increase the amount of strength in your hands
