well if theres a capo on the fourth fret, which you show there, all you are really doing is a C chord in relation to the capo. i really dont know much about guitar, but thats what it looks like to me.

It's not hard for me, but I have huge fingers. But yeah just play a regular E barre.

its not about your finger being long enough, its about your finger being strong enough. if you cant barre then the muscles in your hands aren't developed enough and you need to keep practicing. you will never become a good guitarist if you cant barre chords. thats the truth

what you've got there is E/Ab. Ab is the third of the E chord. or possibly an Ab minor augmented.

a lot of chord shapes may seem difficult at first, but with a little practice back and forth with other chords they quickly become familiar

The E barre chord might sound too thin and tinny because it's all the way on the ninth fret. The C shape barre chord adds dynamics to a chord progression, instead of playing all straight A-shape and E-shape barre chords.

that chord is no problem to play with a barre chord. The capo has its uses but if you can barre something do it.

How long are you playing?
It's not very hard for me.

Why do you have to play this exactly chord, btw.
