F7sus4 Guitar Chord Lesson
This chord is taken from the F Major Scale. The F Major Scale contains the following notes: F, G, A, B Flat, C, D, and E. We need to take the 1, 4, 5 and b7 steps of this scale in order to make this chord, or the notes: F, Bb, C and Eb. That little “b7” symbol simply means that we take the 7th step of the F Major Scale and flatten, or go back, 1/2 step to give us our “Eb”.
