What does it mean to play a chord that says G/B and how do you finger it. Thanks

Yes it means play the chord (G) with a B in the Bass (the lowest note of the chord.)

exactly


a lot of times you can just get away with playing the chord. in this case you could probably just play a G

but if you can figure out where it sounds best always add the bassnote

I think it means this.

2nd fret A string B note, 3rd fret low E string G note. Open G chord in standard tuning.

A G/B chord contains the notes of a G major chord but a B is the lowest note played. The way that RPotts notated it is probably the most common voicing but technically, anywhere on the fretboard that you can position you fingers to play only G, B and D and B is the lowest note is going to constitute a G/B chord.

If you see a slash that means that the chord has an altered bass note. G/B has a bass note of B, which basically means you would invert the chord so that B was the bass note. However, as is the case above, when the note is already in the chord (as it is above) you can often get away with playing just a regular G major chord unless it is part of the phrasing of the song (ascending/descending basslines and the like).
