Why is it so hard to play an F chord?

What is the hardest guitar chord?
The six-string F chord is one of the hardest standard chord shape to play on the guitar.

How do you make an easy F chord?
Move your middle finger up one string to the 3rd string (still 2nd fret), and place your pinky on the 3rd fret of the 4th string. That’s the easy F chord. Keep your first and third fingers in place during the chord change. These are what we call Common Chord Fingers.
Why is C chord so hard?

Why is D chord so hard?
The D chord on guitar is very difficult for beginners because you have to use three ‘split’ fingers (they’re not bunched together in an easy or compact group) and secondly you must avoid playing 2 strings. They mean “don’t play this string”.) Ouch. This one’s tough!
Why can’t I play barre chords?
If your thumb is too high or if you’ve wrapped it around the neck, it will be impossible to play a barre chord. You either want to line up your thumb with your index finger, or between your index finger and ring finger (i.e. first and second finger).
