Is there a easy way to play an A B chord on the guitar?

I am learning how to play guitar. I can not bar chords very well.

A string, 2nd fret
D string, 4th fret
G string, 4th fret
B string, 4th fret
This is a B major

To make a B minor, drop your finger from the 4th fret on the B string to the 3rd fret.

There are many ways to make various B chords on the guitar.

If you want, you can omit the A-string note, cause there's still a B note on the G-string, 4th fret. The chord is still a B major!

In case you don't already know the strings are named (from the top) E, A ,D, G, B, E

To play the A B chord on a guitar, you first need to find the B note to use as the root note in the chord then move down to the A string and count up from there. You need to go past A# and find the B on the second fret.

It should be noted (if you'll pardon the pun) that the root note does not necessarily have to be in the bass position. So long as it's there somewhere it's all good.
