The Bb major chord can either be played as a half or full barre chord. For the full barre chord we place our whole finger over the first fret, with the top slightly hanging over. Make sure that your finger presses every string down, it may take slight adjustments. For the half barre we just use the top joint of the index finger to press down the E and A strings. Whichever barre you choose the middle finger is then arched and pressed down on the second fret of the C string. And finally, our ring finger makes the same shape to play the third fret on the G string.
