7sus4 Chords - Left Handed

The 7sus4 chord is based on the 1st (Root) - 4th - 5th & b7th notes of a major scale. Inversions change the order of the notes by playing a different note as the lowest note of the chord. The chord symbols are written using a slash (/) such as C7sus4/F which means to play a C7sus4 chord with the F note as the lowest note in the chord. These chord symbols are common to other instruments such as keyboards.

There are 4 types of inversions;

  2nd Inversion   5  b7  1  4   C7sus4/G   =  G  Bb  C  F
