Hey

that lesson is coming up this week, we've looking at 7sus2 chords which you can see here, https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...showtopic=48833, so to build a Sus2 chord you just use the first 3 notes of any of those chords, 1-2-5, taking out the 7th from that lesson.

Basically, a sus2 chord is on where you take the normal triad, 1-3-5, and you replace the 3rd with the 2nd note, so you get 1-2-5.

If you had C, C-E-G, and you replace E with D, you get C-D-G a Csus2 chord.

Hope that helps!
