Eb7sus4 Guitar Chord Lesson

In the following post, we will be covering how to play the Eb7sus4 guitar chord .

The Eb7sus4 Guitar Chord is found by locating the 1, 4, 5 and b7 positions of the Eb Major scale: Eb F G Ab Bb C D Eb, or the notes Eb, Ab, Bb and Db. The “b7″ symbol is referring to the flattened 7th position of the Eb Scale. When we flatten a note, we are simply going back 1/2 step from that note. In this case, because the “D” is the 7th note of the Eb Major Scale, when we flatten it by 1/2 step, we come up with a Db.

C#7sus4 Guitar Chord

In today’s post we will be learning exactly how to play a guitar chord known as C#7sus4.  Other names for this chord are C Sharp 7 Sus 4, C# dominant 7th suspended 4th, Db7sus4.   Let’s dive into a little music theory concerning this chord shall we?  This chord has it’s origins in the C# Scale.  The C# Scale consists of the following note:  C#, D#, E#, F#, G#, A#, and B#.   As you can see there are 7 notes within this scale, but we only need 4 notes from this scale to build are chord and those notes are:  C#, F#, G#, B.  You are probably wondering how we came up with those 4 notes right?   Well it’s quite simple.  We need to apply a simple little formula that looks like this:  1-4-5-b7.  This just means that we need to take the 1st, 4th, 5th and flattened 7th positions of the C# Scale to make our C#7sus4.   The “flattened 7th” or “b7″ may need a bit of explaining.  For this, we just take the 7th position of the C# scale and go back or “flatten” that note one half step to arrive at our “B”.
