In this lesson we look at sus4 or suspended 4th chords. They have quite a tense, colourful sound and are very commonly used. More often than not they are followed by their respective major chord.
They are are a great way of adding extra colour to chord progressions. Go back and listen to Jesus Doesn’t Want Me for A Sunbeam and hear how an Asus4 chord is thrown in on beat 4 of the third bar of the verse. Give it a try.
