This is a video tutorial that shows how you can use suspended chords to play a well known song with an added flair.

Remember Suspended chords are just chords that add in an extra note from the scale.

Example: Csus2 would add the 2nd note in the C scale (D). Chords in their most basic form, are usually composed of the 1st, 3rd, and 5th note of the scale.

You will often find that a Suspended chord replaces the 3rd note, with the suspended notes.

Example: C chord - C E G
                Csus2 - C D G

Learning about intervals and octaves is very important when trying to create chord voicings, or learning to play scales.  This video explains what a half step, and whole step is. Learning half steps, can help you figure out how to space intervals, and creat nice sounding chords. After learning about half steps, and whole steps, you can then begin to learn about the circle of fifths.

Learn the names of the notes on the keyboard, and how they progress chromatically.  This is the first step in learning to play.  This vid gives you an idea of where each note is on the piano relative to the others.  Once you learn all the notes, you can start forming chords.  Once you learn chords you can start stringing them together to make chord progressions.  These chord progressions in turn, help you play songs.

Starting from a C note, here is the names of all the notes leading up to the next C note.

C, (C#,Db), D, (D#, Eb), E, F, (F#, Gb), G, (G#, Ab), A, (A#,Bb), B, C

Benny Davis performs The Four Chords Song. First performed in the Sydney University Arts Revue (2006).

This vid shows a few basic chords, used in a nice little chord progression.  Learn the notes of the chord and then put them together.  The person in the video does not show the full chord at all times.  Sometimes he just plays the third and seventh note. 

Below I have typed out the chords in the video, and the notes that make up that chord, this way you don't get confused.

Fm7- F Ab C Eb
