Guitar Chords Lesson #9 | Pop-Rock and Sus Chords

Nate Richards on November 9, 2021

Pop-Rock and Sus chords – adding some color to our chord library!

What are sus chords? “Sus” stands for “suspended.” This is a music theory term for how these chords are built (essentially, replacing the 3rd of a chord with either the 2nd or 4th). However, we really don’t need to go into that detail – we just need to bask in the glory of the color and sound they produce!

Practice these 8 chords, be creative by making your own chord progressions, and we will put them together in 5 chord progressions in the final lesson of this chord series in the next lesson!
