Barre chords are a great big sound, they have their place.

But if I'm playing rhythym while someone else is singing or soloing, I prefer to play smaller chords to leave them some space to work in.

Very good response MO.  Big chords work well if you are playing solo but in a group I use what I call little chords and try to stay on the middle strings so as not to compete with the soloist on the top strings or the bass on the low strings.

See general in general conversation. I posted response to fellow member 9th September. There are charts to show what makes various chords. Remember too if you play D chord shape 2 frets away you've got E. Then it follows 3 frets F and 5 frets G. Then you should know from Octaves 10thfret your back to A.

Try it: Also GBE open is naturally Em, if you want Am, it's a bar gbe strings 5th and Dm is bar on gbe 10th. Learn to mix and play open strings too.
