Just a stupid question, how do you play your A chord? Do you bar it with your first finger or do you use three fingers? I learned to bar it but now I am thinking maybe that isn't the best way to play it. It kinda makes it hard to change to some chords really fast. Like I said stupid question just curious.

I bar it, because I don't usually use basic chords down there unless its for a resolution.

3 fingers, when I bar it I have a hard time not hitting the high E string with my finger. Most of the chords I play require three or four fingers, so if I use 3 fingers for the A chord it's a lot easier for me to transition into another chord.

First three fingers usually. Sometimes fingers 2-3 &4 if I need a quick change to F (bar E first fret)as in ie. 'Peggy Sue'.
Always best to keep your options open :)

Yes Skold, but do you fret it with 3 fingers or with a barre.

Personally I use 3 fingers.

First 3 fingers - if you barre it then you can end up hitting the F# above on the E string which creates an Amaj6 chord, or as I like to call it 'the daytime soap opera chord'. It's best to use 3 fingers because if you hit the open E string above you're still playing the 5th of the chord anyway, so there's no problem.
