Fingering:

The Bm7/b5 is not easy and that is probably not a surprise! We start with the index on the first fret of the E string. After that we put the middle finger on the second fret of the G string. It will need to be moved back a little so the ring finger can fit on the second fret of the C string. The pinky will then go on the second fret of the A string. The fingers are definitely crammed in on this chord, there is nearly not enough room. Use the very tips of your fingers and try to keep them straight so they have less chance of causing dead or muted strings
