Are you talking about a B chord at the second fret?

What strings are you playing and which are you not?

How exactly are you fingering it?

If you are talking about playing 5th string 2nd fret and 4th fret on the 4th, 3rd, and 2nd strings most people most of the time would barre their ring finger for all of the 4th fret notes...

(Remember, we call the skinny string the 1st and the thick one the 6th....)

I do have small hands and the vast majority of the time when I'm playing an acoustic in standard tuning I tune all the strings down a whole step (two fret's worth) and put a capo at the second fret. There is a HUGE advantage in playability to someone with smaller hands that way. The trade off is that you start moving into a wider area of the fretboard though.....

Most people use a Shubb or Keyser capo...
Indeed, there is something in the current DC/NY culture that equates a lack of unthinking boosterism with a lack of patriotism. As if not being drunk on the latest Dow gains is somehow un-American. - Arianna Huffington May 11, 2009
