Introduction to Suspended Chords (sus4)

In this lesson we’re going to start taking a look at suspended chords; specifically, the suspended fourths. A suspended fourth is a chord in which we’ve removed the third that is normally found in the chord, and replaced it with a fourth. So your basic chord structure would look like this: I, IV, V. An example would be Gsus4, which would look like this: G (I), C (IV), D (V). Remember, those are the notes in the G chord, not separate chords.
