    You could probably figure out a scale for the key of B and it would be helpful as far as playing single notes. But playing chords in that key would involve playing B-C#-D#-E-F#-G#-A#, with B-G#-A# being the dominant chords in that key. You could do it, and probably be a better guitar player, but it in my not-so-very-experienced opinion, it’s a helluva lot easier to capo at the 4th fret and play G-C- and D. Those chords will also give you a more traditional sound to the song. Just my opinion.

    Lots of bluegrass songs were written in B, but there aren’t many singers who can si g in B, and even fewer that can sing the 5th or even the third over B. For BG just capo the 4th and play G position.
