It's raspberry beret by warren Zevon,
In fact, if anyone has any tips on chords/tunings Warren Zevon often uses that would be great, thanks

Are you looking for a different way to play chords that are too difficult for you?
If you are, stop it. Just practice more and they'll get easier.

If you're just curious about other chords that will fit in, have a look at chord substitution. Basically, if any two chords share two or more notes, you can use either in place of the other one.

Ultimately, look, you've got to get your barre-shaped chords down. It takes practice (and a properly set-up guitar) but it's such a vital skill.

That being said, when you're playing something's in the key of E you can often use a B7 for that B major, and there's an open B7 fingering that's pretty useful which you should learn: 021202 low to high.

Why would you have the open E sounding in a B7 chord? The root of B7 is NOT E, it's a B (and B also happens to be the bass note in most cases).

One thing you can do, which doesn't sound exactly like it but it sounds nice is to take the E shake, slide it up so that your index finger is on the 6th fret with the E, b, and e strings open and slide it up again 2 more frets for B major.
Its not exactly the same as the barre chords but it has a nice, unique sound to it
