Playing The Amin Chord is very easy as all the notes which are open can be playing without fear of playing a note not in the chord. This chord would be worth knowing, especially since it is so easy to play. 

The formation of the chord is very similar to the Chord of E Major with the difference being that is starts one string further to the right (or closer to the thinner strings). The notes for A minor are A C and E so therefore if you play the chord for Amin snd strum from the A string the notes you are playing are A E A C E in that order.
