Bar chords really just take a lot practise. What do you want to know?

I guess there's no other way than work, it takes a time but it will work out sooner than you notice. But you should not use too much strength, it is not the answer.

I think I'm just learning it on a ****ty acoustic guitar with high action.

All you can do is keep trying. It's all about building the muscle.

Did see that video, the thing about them is that its fairly unclear. I'm getting the hang of it, I just think this guitar might not be the best to learn on.

F chord sucks on a guitar with high action. That's why I encourage people to do what they can to get a decent guitar. Nothing derails a new learner like playing a frustrating guitar. F is like butter on a good guitar.
