Think of barre chords as the same open chords you know: E, Am, Em, and A. Most of the time, barrechords are just one of those chords moved up the neck, and you are using your index finger to sort of capo the fret.

If you're talking about all those crazy jazz barrechords... I have no advice there, cause I'm not a jazz player.

|--5- That's just an A barrechord. Same shape as an open E chord, but with a root on the
|--5- 5th fret of the sixth string, which is an A note.

no you use the e shape, but the chord is now g because thats what the root is and the shape is still the same
