A good one that I just found out about today was a barring technique...
Here we go. What you want to do is lay down your first finger on a fret and barr it. Then, with the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th fingers you want to get them to be able to move them freely with the barr still all the way down.
This can be done by holding down the barr and fretting the bar note and then a fret up with your first finger on the 6th string. Then, start on the 5th string and play the barred note and play the note a fret higher with the second finger.
Next do the fourth string and fret the next note with your ring finger.
Then do the next note and fret the following note with your pinky. Keep doing this until you get down to the high E string. Continue like this...
