The B7 chord is probably the most ubiquitously used chord by The Beatles. It was one of the first few chords the Beatles probably learnt, and there was an interesting story behind it.

Well, chords are relative -- to other chords, and to a key.

B7 means different things, depending on the key, and depending on chords that precede, and come after.

Also, chords sound different when you vary the bass foundation: so B7 with an A bass (or F# bass) can have an entirely different feel than with the standard B bass.

In theory yes, but I am talking about the chord the Beatles learnt from a man on the bus and it's peculiar shape.
