bb7
Notes:
AbDFBb
Fingering:
1211

For the Bb7 we need to barre the first fret with our index finger. Place it completely over the fret with just a little bit of the top hanging over. Use small adjustments until you can press down and make all the strings play with no muted or bad sounds. Once you have this barre down take your middle finger and put it on the second fret of the C string. Keep it perpendicular that way other strings aren’t affected.
