Without going into a long explaination, how would you play Bm7 as a Barre Chord? I know it can be played as
X20202. I want to play it as barre chord so I can move to Bb7 and/or Bm6. I know there are "alternate" notes also so I'm just throwing it out there.

You'll use the Am7 shape:

Am [x 0 2 2 1 0] x A E A C E
Am7 [x 0 2 0 1 0] x A E G C E
Bm7 [x 2 4 2 3 2] x B F# A D F#

An alternative is the Em7 shape:

Em [0 2 2 0 0 0] E B E G B E
Em7 [0 2 0 0 0 0] E B D G B E or [0 2 2 0 3 0] E B E G D E
Bm7 [7 9 7 7 7 7] B F# A D F# B or [7 9 7 7 9 7] B F# B D A B

Here's a good site to show the various chord shapes.

PS for some reason it doesn't show the 7th fret barre chord.

Easiest is low to high X20202.

Easiest way is Ingar's 797777 - that way you can easily change to Bb7 - 686766 or Bm6 - 797797. Either of those changes are pretty easy, you're just adding one finger to a basic two-finger chord.

:D :D :D
