Yeah. Just hold the chord as the notes should all ring out. But you can't barre the high e string obviously. Infact you wouldn't barre it at all. Play A string with 1st finger, D string with 3rd finger, G string with 4th finger and b string with 2nd finger.

1st finger means nearest thumb etc.

Put the index finger on the 5th fret on the A string,
the 2nd finger on the 6th fret on the B string,
3rd finger on the 7th fret on the D string,
4th finger on the 7th fret on the G string.

Then afterwards, try to keep the lower half of the index finger raised so it doesnt touch the high E string.. then pick the tones smile.gif

It's just practice mate. Opeth is a tricky band to play at times but just stick with it and you'll be playing it in no time smile.gif
