Hi,

I have a question about the "Hey There Delilah" tutorial.

In the video Justin holds down the chord for E minor while he strums the 6th string and the 2nd string. Why is it necessary to hold the E minor chord, when the strings that the E minor chord affects are not being strummed?

Similarly for the barred F chord, since only the 6th and 2nd string are strummed, wouldn't it be easier to just hold the bar and ignore the other strings?

You can lift of if you want, but keeping the strings pressed makes it far simpler to move between chords.
Plus if you happen to not fully silence the other strings, they'll at least sound in tune.

As for fretting the full F, you could just fret the two strings, but for the F to G changes, you should really be using the G barre, so its far easier to just move the full F barre up two frets.
