when your fingers are placed on the fret board to form a chord the shape is called a chord "pattern" by taking this pattern and moving up and down the fret board you can play 12 different chords. so all you have to do is learn 1 chord pattern {see pattern 1} now move up one fret and drop your index finger to the 6th sring on the first fret,{see pattern 2} the chord now becomes a Barre chord, move up the fret board using this pattern and you have learned to play 12 chords, the names of the chords are important, but not needed to learn the pattern I found this to be a neat short cut to learning to play chords, try it with other chord shapes you'll see how fast you learn chords.
pattern 1
pattern 2
