Barre chords make use of all of the strings of the guitar, and the full neck of the guitar, to allow you to make any major or minor chord that exists in music.

They are challenging to make and get good tone out of, but what is most important for you at this point is to do your best (without hurting yourself!), and stay with the study.

You will learn to understand so much about the way the neck of the guitar works, even if you cannot yet get good tone out of these chords.
