    Hi Franck
    When a chord diagram includes a black bar covering an entire fret, it is a bar. The number indicates the fret (the neck fret) where you must cross all the strings with your index finger. The other circles indicate the finger to use (1=index, 2=middle, 3=ring, 4=little fingers). To make a bar correctly, the thumb behind the handle must be in the middle of it, to be able to press well. Good luck !
