I always see guitarists and my teacher use like 3 or 4 string unconventional fingerings of chords and they sound good. Can someone please explain what they are using to be able to do this.And how to do it? Thx in advance.

yh theyre chords in another shape

if you're playin on say the 8th fret and you need to play a C Major chord you could play:

|--0--|
|--1--|
|--0--|
|--2--|
|--3--|
|-----|

or you could play the barre chord which is:

|--8--|
|--8--|
|--9--|
|--10-|
|--10-|
|--8--|

because it is closer to the frets you are playing on

tell me if im not making sense

(basicaly all it is is so that we dont have to move as much (WE'RE LAZY!))

And inverted chords. There are buttloads of ways to play different chords if you really, really look.

yh ^ what he said.

what i mean t by the barre chord thing is that depending on where you are in the neck the open C may not be the easiest chord to hit so in that case you woul use something closer to where you are.
