Same for me (index finger bars D & G strings, middle finger frets B string). I learned this way when I was working on flamenco and it really works well having your ring/pinky available for adding extra color notes.

I only know x02340.
I mean i tried others like x02130 but found it more crammed so wnt back to 234.
A with 234 is not bad but B with 234 is where fingers are really crammed.
