Hey guys I usually play a lot of songs with just regular chords (G C F Fm F#M Am Am7 Em7 etc etc Bm so on so forth...) but I just came across this chord Bm7 that I usually would avoid using but in this particular case I really can't (Trying to learn verve -bittersweet symphony... i kno i kno it's a one hit wonder girl song)

But umm
Seriously, how do i finger a bm7? TAHNK YOU.

It's an Am7 with a barre at the 2nd fret

^ That.
Also, why would you just avoid a chord?

i understand it was a dumb question. I see the 79777 as the good way.

But u guys kno the things that pop up wen u hover ovre a chord on the taba pages? It definitely lists Bm7 as something other than x24232

well there are many voicings for Bm7.
what really matters is to know the notes that make the chord,
then you can just build up a voicing you choose.
so,Bm7 is actually a Bm,with an added b7 note.
meaning our notes would be: B-D-F#-A.
an easy way to finger this would be taking a Bm,
and remove the finger on the G string,leaving the barred finger on the string (i`m talking here about the Bm you form using 5 string,the position on second fret.)

Thats B7 brother.

You can Bm7 a bunch of ways, the most common being x24232 and 797777, but it can also be played 7x777x using the second finger for the bass and the third finger to barre.
Listen to my songs, but only if you are prepared for the greatest experience of your life .

If I'm playing it at the 7th fret I prefer

if the song is mostly using bar chords further up the neck, use that. but if it's using mostly open chords use the Am7 shaped one
