The minor chord is a triad (a three-note chord), which means the chord has 3 notes as counted from the root: 1 - b3 - 5. You'll notice that the only difference from the major chord is the flattened 3rd degree note, but this makes a world of difference, since the chords basic quality is totally changed.
Here are 6 voicings of the Em guitar chord, with a chord chart to each voicings' fingering.
The more you practice, the more you'll develop your hands muscle memory, and the easier each chord will become with time.
You can practice changing between chords in your head when you are at the office, on the train, or wherever. This may sound silly, but it really helps remember those chords.
