My voice isnt high enough for most music so I always play with a capo pretty high up the fretboard instead.

I'm playing a song with a Bm in it, and the capo is on 7, the only problem is, it sounds pretty dead because of the capo. Is there an open way of playin a bm?

But bearing in mind I cant really go far up the fretboard as im already on the 7th fret.

B minor is always a barre chord, as far as I know.
Equipment:

Capo's don't tend to sound to good that high up.

Try transposing the song.

If the song was originally in C, then you can transpose it to G using the following chord substitutions:

C becomes G
Dm becomes Am
Em becomes Bm
F becomes C
G becomes D
Am becomes Em

Hope this helps

Try x2023x. It's a pretty convincing Bm.


It's a Bm7 ...

x20x32 ... a bit strange, but it's Bm... =D

A good example of a song that high up that sounds awesome though is Here Comes The Sun by George Harrison (During Beatles). Great song and sounds awesome.

There is other keys than just C and G you can play in , my voice doesn't hit either right and can barely do the Key of D. I tend to play in the key of A and E for my voicing and works quite nice on them high end songs.

Yeah, there are other keys, but if you like the key of A, then just do second fret capo, and play using the shapes of G, and if you like E, use fourth fret, and use C shapes.
