I am probably the only guy on earth who prefers a full barre to any partial barre.

I used to be that guy too. I stopped doing that when I realized I could do things with open G and D shapes easily as long as I did the partial barre thing, which led to figuring out some quick changes.

Was thinking about this two days ago. Noticed I tuck my elbow towards the center of my body to allow proper leverage on the strings. It is significantly further in than when I play a regular chord. Probably bad form but was a game changer when I started doing it.

Yeah I started with a classical. The wide neck helped with those stretches, and nylon strings were a doddle to hold down, but I too struggled with that BM chord.

I think it's a good thing to start out on, then maybe move onto an acoustic. I think it comes down to what you start out with. Acoustic begginers although struggle at the start get the edge. Moving onto an electric then is like child's play. A bit like playing on a full size snooker table then shoot some pool.

That's cool!! There are some voicings (like the one for Bm and Bm7) that I haven't seen before.

Maybe this is a special case, but....if you ever use open tunings, then barring all 6 strings is actually pretty useful.

I just remembered something from about 100 years ago. When I needed more down pressure on a barre chord, I just lifted my elbow up a little and used it like a lever. That might help. Then again, it might not.
