I was trying to play a song, and it called for the chord like this:

E--0----
B--2----
D--2----
G--2----
A--0----
E--0----

and i was having a difficult time trying to hit the frets on that chord without hitting the high e.... I was only using my middle finger and was wondering whether i was doing something wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

That's an 'A Major' Chord. If you can't play it with just one finger, play with your
Index, Middle, and Ring finger together.

Works just as well.

just bar those 3 notes with your pointer finger. it may hurt at first but you'll get used to it.
