The full pattern you've learned so far only works for E major and the E major shaped barre chords. So in this lesson I'll show you how to make it work for an A major shaped barre chord as well as most other common country chords.

The most important thing for this pattern is to get the bass notes right; start on the root note and stay there for the full pattern or add the 5 in between. All the rest of the notes within the pattern aren't as important.
