Sussy – Basic

About This Lesson

Piano Suspended (sus) Chords
Take a C major chord and move the middle note up and you’ll have a Csus4 chord.  C major: C E G.  Csus4: C F G.  Move the middle note down and you’ll have a Csus2 chord.  Csus2: C D G.

It’s all about the middle note!  You can use this rule with any major chord.

*Note: Sometimes you will see only “sus”.  If you see that then play a sus4 chord.
