A barre chord ("E Major shape"), with the index finger used to bar the strings. In music , a barre chord (also known as bar chord or rarely barr chord ) is a type of guitar chord , where one or more fingers are used to press down multiple strings across the guitar fingerboard (like a bar pressing down the strings), enabling the guitarist to play a chord not restricted by the tones of the guitar's open strings . Barre chords are often referred to as "moveable" chords, [ 1 ] as the whole hand may easily be moved up and down the neck, "in one movement". [ 2 ] Commonly used in most popular and classical music, they are frequently used in combination with "open" or standard guitar chords. Though slightly affecting tone quality , fretting a chord transposes , or raises, the chord a number of half-steps higher, similar to the use of a capo . [ edit ] Technique and application The index finger is used to locate the root note in the chord shape.
