The mini barre A chord is use a lot rock. Bands like ACDC and The Who.

With gain the high e string can be a bit overbearing.

Couple things to add on the mini-barre A:

Sometimes it sounds better to NOT play all the strings on a certain chord. It just comes down to the situation and the sound you want to achieve.

Other times it's more convenient to play the mini-barre and if high E string isn't important, you might as well play it the easiest way you can.

@blueguern
you don't need to worry about it / analyse it so much
it's all good
just don't try too hard and / or worry about that top e
