To name the A voicing bar chord up and down
the guitar we use the rules of the alphabet. We
start with A as the natural bar and move up the
guitar according to the fret distances as set by
the alphabet.
Firstly here is the natural names for the A voicing -
A T B S C T D T E S F T G T A
Now here is the full alphabet -
A

Bb

The following page shows the A voicing bar
chord shown for the natural names. The sharps
and flats would fit in accordingly. You will
notice that exactly the same voicing is shown
for each name but just in different frets. This
is the beauty of bar chords - one voicing can
get you any chord including the sharps and
flats, which were almost impossible in the open
position.
