I have an issue when playing barre chords, and I was wondering if I was the only one with this issue. When I play them, it seems the B string rests in the rivit of my index finger and I have to press a bit excessively hard on the actual fret (I of course place my finger above the metal fret, but I have to press it against the fret for that string to ring).

I know.. Practice your finger strength. Has anyone else had this issue specifically? Do you still have the problem?

slide your finger a little up or down, that should get it out of the rivet

the fun part is developing the calluses on your index fingers side . and playing bar chords higher up the neck and turning your index finger sidewards is a little bit of a bitch at first.

If you're playing an electric you'll realise how much easy it is than on an acoustic. If you want to build that extra strength, practice on an acoustic, this way you have to press harder to barre the chord, you might want to try this after you've mastered it on an electric though, for some extra strength, or you'll find it mucho's difficult to do.
