These chords are played near the NUT of the guitar in the 1st
position. Chords that use open strings are known as Open Position chords (Am, Cm, Dm, Dbm, Em & Gm). All chords are Root Position chords as the lowest note of each chord is the Root with the exception of Dbm with the b3rd & Cm with the 5th in the bass.
