In this lesson, you're going to learn all about suspended chords, sus4 & sus2.
Sus is short for suspended. Suspended chords are neither major or minor. If you ever see a 'sus' with no number, this is normally referring to a sus4.
To play a sus chord you have to omit the 3rd and replace it with either the 2nd or 4th.
Suspended chords are unresolved chords, meaning they want to go somewhere else for a resolution. There are many ways to resolve these chords, but some the most common ways are to either resolve down to the 5th below, or just lower/raise the 2nd/4th back to the 3rd.
