It's always easiest to play barre chords somewhere between the 12th and the 4th fret. Up high, the frets are so small that it can be hard to fret and down low the strings are physically harder to press down. So in order for us to be able to stay where it's comfortable, we'll need a major barre chord that has the root on the 5th string. Check it out!
