Hi there!

I thought you might appreciate a short tutorial on how suspended chords are formed and a basic shape to get you started.

Suspended chords sound lovely if you haven't played them before; they can help spice up a chord progression, or you can form a whole song idea around one. They go nicely with some fingerpicking playing, too.

Anyways, I hope you enjoy :)

Cool vid. I'll have to try that out when I get home from work. I can't just play major chords and pentatonic all my life... or, can I? :D

I reckon a lot of guitarists get away with playing just open chords and play amazing music.

Though I wouldn't say no to bar chords either ;)

Cool video. Thanks for taking the time to make it and post it here. I would say it would have been cool to see how they work in a cool chord progression. Maybe in your follow-up video! :D
