have been struggling on MINI F Chord  for about 5 weeks , just couldnt get it right, and then  2day  BOOM near perfect each time. not tried OMC yet, but can at least form mini F barre and play it clear...
For those getting frustrated with this ,or any other chord - as i was just keep practicing ,you will get it.

Question/suggestion about this lesson: Why is the F/A chord - where you bar the first two strings same as the mini F, but instead you play a full E-shape with your 2-4 fingers and mute the thickest string - not covered in this lesson? I notice in a lot of covers people make use of this chord as an F replacement.

To me, this chord is easier to play than both the mini F and the full-bar F, and is also easier to change between in a number of progressions that use F. I realize that pretty much all the chords we've learned so far have had the root note in the bass, but is that really what's stopping Justin from covering it here?  Or does Justin just not find this chord particularly useful?

That's a F/C chord.  F/A would have an open A string in the bass.
The only reason I can think of why Justin doesn't teach it is he doesn't teach country.

Sorry, F/C is right, my bad!

But I see, I was wondering if maybe playing the F/C as an F replacement was a bad habit or something. If not I might get in the habit of using it occasionally.

It won't sound good in all situations. For example when playing C to F or from
F to C. Going from G to F to Em with a walk down.
There will be times when it sounds good, you'll need to deside that for yourself.

What is a bad habit is playing chords because they are easy, not because they sound good.
