How to play A minor open chord on a guitar

Now we are going to talk about one of the sad chords, Am, A minor is played with three fingers and by hitting just five strings.

What we are going to do is put the first finger on the second string first fret, Your second finger is going to the forth string on the second fret and then your third finger is going to be on the third string second fret. This is A minor or just Am.

When I strum it, I am trying to do so from the fift string and down, avoiding the sixth string, and it has a nice sad sound. That´s it, A minor.
