Hi folks. In a published music book (a Paul Simon anthology) I found that they want me to play Cm7sus.
I am confused. Doesn't "sus" mean suspended fourth? And doesn't suspended fourth mean that the fourth note is included and the third excluded? And isn't it the third note that determines whether a triad is major or minor? How can you have a minor suspended fourth? Am I right in calculating that the addition of the sharped seventh is irrelevant to this dilemma?
Is Paul Simon just playing with my head? Could be - it's in the song "Feeling Groovy" and maybe there's a hidden message here for guitar players not to stress over their chords...
