Some of the F chords are not the standard, but are chosen here to qualify as open chords. Many prefer to play some of the F chords as barre chords instead.

F minor is not included since no proper open position version are available. The same thing with Fm7, Fm6, F6 and some other F chords.

F6 is commonly played as XX3231 (with the 5th omitted), but one alternative as an open chord is 100211.
