Closed and Bar Chords

For those who dont know, a closed chord is when you finger all of the strings on the guitar so you have no open strings.
If you want to play Texas Style music you will be using these a lot.
Here's how to play a few common ones. The nice thing is you just slide them up and down the neck to play different chords.
