    Hi, I am Franklin Taggart and I am a guitar player and a guitar teacher. I would like to show you how to make a B minor chord on the guitar. For the B minor chord, your first finger goes on the second fret of the first string. Your middle finger goes on the third fret of the second string. Your ring finger goes on the fourth fret of the fourth string and your pinky goes on the fourth fret of the third string. For the B minor chord you are going to play the bottom four strings and thats how you play a B minor chord.
