Here's another way to play it. Bar the first 3 strings with your index
finger then all you have to do is lift your middle finger off the 3rd(G)
string to make the cord minor(triad 1,b3,5,1[oct]. You can go through 6
of the 7 cords of a key by lifting or putting down just the middle
finger. The diminished cord requires repositioning and using more
fingers (tough to do on the lower end of the fret board).
Good for cord progressions that have both major and minor cords.
Terry

excellent info.... but where would I find the other movable chords for
the key of "C" ????

Key of "C"?
That sucker is good for all the standard major and minor keys as are
many of the other movable shapes. Just have to know what degree of the
scale your on and weather it's major, minor or diminished.
What you really need to know is how the major scale is laid out on the
fret board. That is, how one note is positioned in relation to all the
other notes of the scale. Not only up and down the strings but across
the fret board (not that hard).
Other scales and the modes are compared to the major scale. That's what
all the b3 #4 b5 etc. stuff is all about. Cords are built on this stuff.
It'll get you going.
The rest of his theory lessons are worth a look at too.
I had a better site for this but can't seem to find it.
If that site doesn't do it for you, just go to other theory sites and
read them. Eventually it'll sink in.
Terry-

Better than that go take some courses.
