    How would be the best way to accomplish these fingerings?

    I've just been putting a finger down across all of them and pushing really hard, to no avail. Should i be developing calousses on my finger for this?

    E A D G B E

    4 6 6 4 4 4

    2 4 4 3 2 2

    x 6 8 8 7 6

    x 2 4 4 4 2

    barred E minor, barred E major, barred a minor and barred a major. Shits easy, just push your index across the top fret, probably making your finger turn a little when applying the rest of the fingers to make the chord. DONT PUSH DOWN HARD, just practice and itll come and youll realize that you just werent applying equal pressure along the entire index finger, especially at the knuckles. And also, you can sound those x'ed out notes and it will still be correct. And try using just your index and ring finger for the barred A. And dont forget that these arent the names of the chords just the shapes.

    and where you put your thumb is going to dictate how hard is will be to barre the chord. This will be a testament to your patience and perfection because you have to get it just right for it to work.

    Directly below your index finger that's laying flat acrossed the barred strings.
