"Open Chords" are the most common shapes used on guitar. They are called "Open" because they all utilize the open strings and do not require barring.

"Bar Chords" extend the open chords to the neck with the bar acting as a movable capo. In the example below, your first finger will go all the way across the 3rd fret and use fingers 2, 3, and 4 for the rest of the notes. If you notice this is really the same shape as a major open chord just moved up three frets.

"Extended Open Chords" keep the same shape as open chords but travel up the neck for very exotic sounds.

"Triads" playing only three notes at a time rather than strumming all strings.
