This chord form for the Bmin chord is actually a moveable chord and can be played anywhere on the fretboard. Your root will be on the 5th string. When playing the D chord, we’re featuring the high D (2nd string 3rd fret) which carries our melody. Your right hand will pick out the melody - so it’s not really a strum, but more like a chord-melody pattern.
