I appreciate everyones input. Getting stuck on a lesson is no fun, and I've been on lesson 7 for several months! At least I know how to form the chords even if they don't sound like music! I will keep working on them, but allow myself to move onto the next lesson. Now if someone can come up with a way to flatten out the crease in my finger where the D string loses contact with the fret board, that would be great!
I guess I misunderstood, since we learned all the notes of the 6th string in lesson 7 and the barre chords, I assumed that you should be able to make all the barre chord forms for all the 6th string notes! From what you are saying, that is not correct! I only have to learn them for the F, G A, B & C forms?
