I'm a beginnerish player, I'm messing around with I can't Explain. Now, with the chords:
E x7999x
D x5777x

How do I get the third 9 and 7? I can play it ok just with the 3 string power chord but it obviously doesn't give that fullish sound. How do I fret the chords properly?

Oh and also
A 577655

I barre the 5 initially to achieve this right?

for the E and D chords, you use the index on the A string, the middle on D, the ring on G and the pinky on the B string. for the A chord, you barre the 5th fret on all the strings with the index, ring on the A string, pinky on D and middle on G. hope this helps.

Damn index finger won't stretch onto the A string when the others are placed lol

Am I retarded?

Yes. What you have to do is, put your index finger on the A string and take your third finger and lay it across the D, G and B string thus barring it and pressing all the strings down with your third finger. So you really just need two fingers

To play the A chord, I just lay my first (index) finger across the 5th fret on all strings, middle (2nd) finger for the G string's 6th fret, 3rd (ring) finger for the A string's 7th fret and my pinky for the D string's 7th fret.
