So
as we're learning the chords to play on
the bass, we've played major chords and
the minor chords.
And I'd like to introduce you to the
suspended chord.
And I think the reason it's called
suspended
cuz it sounds like you're in suspense and
it's, it should be resolving.
So in other words, if you're in the key of
E, it should resolve to the third.
So
[MUSIC]
And then, in the key of A.
[MUSIC]
So
what I'd like to do, is come up with
little patterns to practice,
where I can get to my suspended, from my
suspended chord, to the, third.
And I use a little exercise
[MUSIC]
And again,
you could make up your own exercises that
use these chords.
