What is the B chord?
The B guitar chord is usually not one of the first chords you learn. You might recognize this chord formation as the A formation. It is played with a bar on the 2nd fret with the first finger across the 1st through 5th strings. Then you bar with your ring finger on just the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th strings on the 4th fret.
Why is the B chord so hard?
Because the barre chord puts a lot of tension on your fingers. You’re trying to push the strings down right where the guitar nut is holding the string up. The Bb chord also is played where the frets are furthest apart, due to fretboard design. So tension and the stretch make it difficult.
What chord can you play instead of B?

- Lastly your 4th finger on string D at fret 9.
What chord is C M?
Since C#m is a minor chord, you’d use the minor chord formula to build your chord, combining the root note, minor 3rd, and perfect 5th. Your root note, C#, will be the starting point of your scale. From there, add your minor 3rd (E), and your perfect 5th (G#). To play the C#m chord, you’ll play C#, E, and G# together.
