The B chord is a strange one!

When you’re a beginner you learn all the other letters don’t you… A C D E F G, why is B missing!!!

As you can see from the pictures, here’s why. It’s a challenging barre chord for beginners in whatever form you play it.

This suggestion is an A shape barre chord. Stretching that middle, ring and pinky finger out into the fourth fret. You can also double barre this with your ring finger if you prefer.

The other way to play this chord is to make an E shape barre chord on the 7th fret.
