Suspended Chords Part 1

Sus2 and Sus4 Chords

Suspended chords can be used in variety of ways because they are not considered major or minor. The reason they are “suspended” between the two is due to the missing 3rd, which would normally determine whether a chord is major or minor. The sus2 chord can be categorized with root5 chords. The sus4 has slightly more of a dominant sound characteristic.
