Video 1. First play an “Easy to Play”  Chord Progression by fretting the 3rd Fret of the 1st & 2nd Strings then Create the Chords by repositioning the Index & Middle Fingers.

Note that the Chords being played are G – Cadd2 – Dsus4.

An “Add 2” Chord uses the 1-2-3-5 Notes of the Major Scale to
Construct the Chord (adding the 2nd to the Triad)
AND

A “Sus 4” Chord uses the 1-4-5  Notes of the Major Scale to construct the Chord instead of the
1-3-5 Notes used for the Major Chord (substituting the 4th for the 3rd of the Triad).
