For a quick recap of tips, they are listed here:

Tip #2: Press right behind the frets
Tip #3: When playing a 5-string barre chord, don’t barre the 6th string
Tip #4: Sometimes you don’t even need a barre chord!
Tip #5: Be aware of the angle of your barre finger

Tip #7: Use the minimum amount of energy needed to barre!
