I have an accoustic, and when playing barre chords in the "A formation", I'm having trouble barring 3 strings with my 3rd finger. So is there any way to get better at this(other than practice). Ex: x57775

Also, I'm playing power chords with my 1st, 3rd, and 4th fingers. Other than my 1st finger, should I use my 3rd or 4th finger to barre the other 2 stings. Thanks!

you can use your 2nd, 3rd, and 4th fingers on the D,G,and B strings, instead of barring them. i do that when the bar is lower than like the 4th fret.

Thats' fine. Play power chords however they feel good too you.

I play them with my 1st and 3rd finger. I can't play them worth crap if i add my 4th finger to them.

Barres with a 5th string root sound fine when the high E isn't played. If the problem is your 3rd finger not being able to let the high E ring out, that's fine. If the trouble is with your finger not being able to barre the 3 strings at all, you'll probably get better leverage by barring strings 1 through 4 and just not playing the high E.

I don't barre all 4, but I don't play the high E anyway. Sometimes it rings out in that lame 'not really ringing out' fashion, so I just say fuggedaboutit.
