Something I have always wondered about since I first started the coarse. My question is in regards to sus 4 chords which you introduce in one of the early sessions. A sus 4 chord typically has the make-up of 1,4,5. However, in both the 5 & 6 string forms, you have them in a form where a finger is removed from the higher octave root resulting in a dominant chord form 1,4,5,b7 which I think may be called a 7(sus4) chord. Wondering why chose to teach this form and musically, where would I want to use a 'pure' sus 4 chord and where would a 7&(sus 4) chord come in handy(e.g. in a jazz setting?).
