    Hi @OhWowMan , I think everyone here has given great advice👍 My 2 cents, take that B chord shape up the neck to where the index is barring the 5th or 7th fret and try it there. Two reasons, first is that making barre chords close to the nut can be difficult because the string tension is higher there. Second, the frets are further apart near the nut, and the stretch can be difficult between the index and ring, particularly when trying to hit the sweet spot with the ring on the 4th fret. If you try that shape further up the neck then you’ll have less string tension as well as the frets being narrower, meaning less of a stretch and no problem about a sweet spot. IMHO🤔
