The F Minor Chord (F, Ab, C) is one with only a few voicing outside its popular barre chord variants, but that doesn't mean they don't exist, or that we won't be teaching them to you. Buckle up, as we take you on a short (but wild) ride through several F Minor chord voicing.
If you run into any problems with the voicing above, you can try one of these slightly easier F Minor alternatives, also on the 1st fret: Those should serve as suitable “stepping stones” until you're secure enough in your abilities to play the complete F Minor barre chord.
Finally, since we promised you F Minor without the barring as well, here are two voicing you can try on the 5th and 6th frets. By now, you know that you'll need a good workout to memorize these voicing and add them to your repertoire.
Don't shortchange yourself on training time; as always, good luck, and happy practicing! When teaching, he draws from his experience on stage, injecting the knowledge of what it takes to be a gigging musician into every lesson.

Chord symbols in music can be confusing, simply because there are a lot of them. The first thing to understand in chord symbols is the letters.
These letters (with and without accidentals) represent all the notes on the staff. Let’s look at the following song, Can’t Help Falling in Love by Elvis Presley.
The letters you see represent the root or tonic (the first note of any major or minor scale) of the chord being built. In addition to the previously mentioned letters, you may see an “M” or two on your music, which leads us into our next section: chord quality.
Major and Minor Dominant Augmented, Diminished, and Half-Diminished For example, if you see the letter “A” on a lead sheet, you can assume it’s an A Major chord.
Minor chords may also be represented by an uppercase letter and a lowercase “m,” for example, Dm. The “7” may look small as it does in the example above, or regular sized, as “C7.” Either way, it signifies a dominant seventh chord.
The two chords sound very different but are easily confused. In augmented chords, the “plus” sign (+) is often used to signify raising the fifth by a half step.
Remember that the minus sign (-) is used to signify minor chords. The typical symbol for a diminished chord is a small circle (o).
The half-diminished chord symbol is very similar to the diminished chord symbol; however, you can tell the difference between the two by a diagonal slash through the small circle (ø). You will also regularly see “Cm75” representing a half-diminished chord (another standard for guitar tabs).
Scale degrees 2, 4, and 6 imply that they are being added to a triad, while tones 9, 11, and 13 imply that they are being added to a seventh chord (since they extend past the 7th). Tones 9, 11, and 13 can get confusing because they extend past the octave of a regular diatonic scale.
However, as we previously stated, 9, 11, and 13 imply that these tones are being added to a seventh chord. Suspension in music is a means of creating tension by prolonging a note while the underlying harmony changes, generally on a strong beat.
There are many ways that chords will be suspended, but when notated, you will primarily see the symbols: If you see sus2, that means that the second scale degree should be played in the chord.
If you’ll remember back to our first example, Can’t Help Falling in Love by Elvis Presley, we talked about a chord: C/BY, which meant that a C major chord was being played over a BY in the bass. You will most likely see it written as G/B, which means you are playing a G major chord with a B (the 3rd scale degree) in the bass.
In the rare occasion that you are using Roman numerals, you will see different symbols. There are also separate symbols for seventh chord inversions if Roman numerals are involved.
For further explanation on Roman numerals, check out our Glossary of Music Terms. Like any new piece of knowledge, it will take time to commit these symbols to memory, but the more music you play, the more you will see them and start becoming familiar.
