It's just a bar form.

Like this for the Minor form

e-4
B-4
G-4
D-6
A-6
E-4

Where your index finger is like a bar across the fretboard, on the 4th fret, and your ring and pinkie fingers are on the 6th frets on the A and D strings.

That's for a major, but just extrapolate.

do a search bout chords. It much easier for some people to learn bout reading guitar tabs. Again do a search bout this also on how to read them. The black dots represent what to frets to need to put your fingers on. The the clear dots represents open notes/frets.
