In this video you will see how to play the B Minor Chord on the piano.
he B minor chord is made up of two white notes and a black note: B, D, and F sharp (F#).
The most common writing of the B minor chord in a chord chart is: Bmin. In a fake book, you may see it written as B-, b-, b, Bmin, bmin, Bmi, and bmi.
To play the B minor chord, locate the B, which is to the right of the three-black-note group. The D is the white note between the group-of-two black notes. The F# is the black note that is the lowest (on the left) of the group-of-three black notes.
Because of the F#, the B minor chord can feel a little awkward to play on the piano if you’re trying to keep your keys over the white notes. Move your hands closer to the fallboard (the lid of the piano) so your fingers are hovering over and between the black keys.
With your right hand, put thumb on the B, and slide it in towards the fallboard so it’s next to the neighboring black note. Once you do that, it will be easier to place your middle finger on D and your pinky on F#.
With your left hand, place your pinky on the B, also sliding it in towards the fallboard so it’s next to the neighboring black note. Place your middle finger on D, making sure it’s also tucked in between the neighboring black notes. That will make it easier for your thumb to rest on the F sharp.
