What are some of the ways to play the F chord without resorting to a barre chord?

Wrong thread. and there is only one way. Unless u just play with the top strings. like the e can be 1 , then the b is 1, then the g is 2 then the d is 3. i'm saying it like the letters on the string and the fret to use

well if you want a cool, major version of F, but not just plain, it sounds really cool

e 0
B 0
G 2
D 3
A 3
E 1

Theres also:

e 1
B 1
G 2
D 3
A x
E x

the bottom segment of an F barre chord

e 1
B 2
G 3
D 4
A x
E x

Fmaj7

those are just a couple major versions of an F chord. If you're looking for something you cant find in a book, you can always find your own unique voicings.

Good technique for fingering a minor right here.

I'll have to agree with Chung on this one, which is very hard for me to do. It's only a two string barre, it's not at all difficult.

If you always try and take the easy way out then you'll never learn anything.

Same here, I remember trying to stretch my fingers to do it....and then I learnt to barre. I smile at it now.

I, like Nelsean, remember my first encounter with the F-chord. It was like:

Me: "What? How do you do that?!"
Mom: "Like this" *barres F*
Me: "ONE FINGER ON MORE THEN ONE STRING?!?! IMPOSSIBLE!!!"
Mom: *laughing at my idiocy*
Me: "Well, F can't be used that often anyway..."

I play it this way (first posted on this thread by 6DgOfInTb). You use your first finger to cover the E and B strings. Second finger on the G and third on the D. (the strings with X's on them are the ones you don't play)
