You can play Classical Gas after a year? I think we have a prodigy on our hands.

You do them the same way you do the E-shaped and A-shaped - move everything one finger back and then barre it. So let's say you wanted to play E major. These are the correlating G, C, and D-shaped barre chords:

C-shaped

G-shaped

X (or 12, if you can do it. I usually just leave it out)
9

Basically, any open chord that uses 3 fingers can be turned into a barre chord. There are also other shapes - 9th chords, diminished chords, etc. - that aren't technically barre chords but lend themselves to easy moving around the fretboard.
