Do I just remove a certain finger? I remember it being pretty simple to change a Major barre into a minor and I was just wondering if anyone could give me a quick explanation. Thanks a lot!!

well those are the only shapes for major barre chords there are


basically you just turn the 3rd into a minor (or flat) 3rd

do you know your scales and a bit about chord theory?

read this anyway

major:

e|---|-X-|---|---|---|
B|---|-X-|---|---|---|
G|---|---|-X-|---|---|
D|---|---|---|-X-|---|
A|---|---|---|-X-|---|
E|---|-X-|---|---|---|


Minor

e|---|-X-|---|---|---|
B|---|-X-|---|---|---|
G|---|-X-|---|---|---|
D|---|---|---|-X-|---|
A|---|---|---|-X-|---|
E|---|-X-|---|---|---|


this is the basic template (assuming your root note is on the low E string).

If you're using barre chords, I guess you're used to open E, Em, A and Am chords.

Well, in case you haven't noticed, barre chords are replications of those E and A chords (and sometimes C and G) all over the neck. You've got your E major chord. You make it minor by removing that index finger (a G#) and leaving the G string open. Now say you have a F# major barre chord. Remove the middle finger and you have a minor F#!

Now for A barre chords. It's the same thing, except this one might require more movement. The minor position of an A barre chord is the same of the major E shaped barre chords.
