Sus is short for suspended. In this lesson I talk about which note is being suspended so you know where these sus chords come from. Also how you can use them!

Sus2 chords are found below the minor note.

Sus4 chords are found above the major note.

Both sus2 and sus4 chords work with either the major or minor chord.


Once you go through the barre chords, can you find out what a sus barre chord would be? (Barre chords are discussed in Beginner Overview 9/10 and 10/10)
