Keep up the good work Tony! 😀 The F chord is one of the hardest to learn, but once you have it down, you’ll see how useful it is to have it. For example, if you have a chord progression of F-G-Am, all you have to do is hold the shape and move up the fretboard (Am you just have to lift the second finger). It’ll save you time and energy.
By the way, I have a tip for playing the A-shape bar chord that I’ve never seen anyone suggest. The trouble with the A-shape is that you have to make two bars, one full and one covering the D-G-B strings which can be really tough especially for people with small hands, like me. I discovered that I can bar the D and G strings with my ring finger and hold down the B string with my pinky and play the chord effectively that way.
