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.
Below are four different ways to play this particular guitar chord along the neck of your guitar. These are more advanced chords so if you are an absolute beginner, you may find these a bit challenging as you will need to understand how to mute strings and play barre chords in order to play these correctly. It is important that you don’t get discouraged if you find these too difficult at the moment. Just keep trying as it is very important to always challenge yourself.

Everything on the above chart should be self explanatory, except for the last three in the third column. They may need a bit of explaining. The O, or open symbol, simply means that you do not press down on any notes on that string. The X means you do not strum that particular string. The Barre symbol means you need to barre that particular fret. When you barre a fret you are pressing down on multiple strings at the same time with one finger.
