Spread Triads: sus2 Chords

NO SCRIPT


Try to see the relationship between these chords and the sus4 chords; the two chord groups are inversions of each other.

Remember also that any three-part chord can be an independent chord structure, or it could also be used and understood as a smaller part of a larger chord or even scale structure. For example, this Fsus2 could easily be used over an F major chord in many cases, as the G note is tension 9. Learn more about chord tensions...

Key Tasks

  • Study the Fsus2 arpeggios, and compare them to Csus4 arpeggios; for the B♭sus2, compare them with Fsus4.
  • Practice resolving each sus2 arpeggio up to the major chord.
