Guitar Chords: Guitarists: How Do I Play A B Chord?

“Now Play It” Best teacher ever!!

I dont understand how you can have one finger over two strings that have 3 strings between them. I understand when you play F, you can have your two fingers over the two strings cause they are beside each other but i have absaloutly no idea how to do a B chord and other chords where you have to have one finger over multiple strings.
Please some one tell me, a way, without breaking my fingers, how to do it.

    Its called “barring” Place your first finger all the way across the 1st fret. Then use your remaining fingers for the 3rd fret.

    Hope i helped.

    You can use your index for the outer strings and either your pinky or ring to do the inner three.It takes a while to get the strength so persevere!!!!
