In this 4k guitar tutorial you'll learn how to play an essential guitar chord trick using the D - Dsus4 and Dsus 2 chords. Free 20 Most Important Strum Patterns For Guitar at https://www.rocklikethepros.com
This chord lick is super simple to play it will make you sound amazing to all your family and friends.
All 3 of these chords, D, Dsus4, & Dsus2 are all D chords where we are adding or taking away fingers.
Once you got the D chord down, let's move onto the Dsus4 chord. The thing to remember is all you want to do when going from D to Dsus4 is add your pinky to the 1st string 3rd fret.
It's common that guitar players want to remove their 2nd finger off the 1st string when they put down their pinky but that is not necessary and actually make switching between these chords more difficult.
Next, go back to the D chord and then we'll go to the Dsus2 chord. The only thing you have to do to get from D to Dsus2 is remove the 2nd finger and play the 1st string open.
Sus stands for suspended and that simply means that you are replacing the 3rd of the chord for either the 4th degree (sus4) or the 2nd degree (sus2).
So check this out.
The D chord is made up of the D - F# - A notes. These come from the D Major Scale (D - E - F# - G - A - B - C# - D). Notice that the D is the root of the scale, the F# is the 3rd of the scale and the A is the 5th of the scale.
To play Dsus4 you are going to replace the 3rd (F#) with the 4th degree which is G.
It's important to remember that sus means replacing the 3rd degree. If you keep the 3rd degree (F#) in the chord and add the G note, you create a Dadd4 chord, not a Dsus4 chord.
The notes to the Dsus4 chord are D - G - A.
Finally the Dsus2 chord is going to replace or "suspend" the 3rd degree (F#) and use the 2nd degree (E).
The notes to the Dsus2 chord are D - E - A.
Once you master these 3 guitar chord shapes then you can start jamming out moving back and fourth between the D, Dsus4, and Dsus2 to start creating chord licks.
This is simple to master and sounds cool when you play it to non-guitar players.
