Time flies, this chord can makes a progression fly, too
Here's a bright voicing for a G9 suspended chord. Remember the Sus chord uses the 4th (C) of the chord instead of the 3rd (B). I really like this chord because it includes the ninth (A) and the root is on top which both add to its brightness.
Just as time flies, so will your ideas and your fingers when you start working with this chord. To resolve it, just take your index finger off that B string and you've got your G9 chord with that resonant B open string.
On the wings of motivation, fly to your Seagull dealer
Now you've got a bright new chord to give you ideas. And as time flies by, send us your ideas for our list. To give you some extra motivation, go in to your local music store that carries the Seagull guitar and check out the Artist Mosaic. Try the G9Sus chord on it and see how it sounds!
