Subject: RE: Is Cm7sus a real chord?
Well, yes, Michael, you've got a good point there--the thing that I was missing was the recording, and my memory isn't what it used to be--but it does sound like what he plays, except that my (admittedly erratic) memory tells me that there might be a C in the bass, below the D in the melody(ignoring that we are in third position with the capo) giving an ascending line: A-B-C-G

The critical thing being that minor third note is voiced before the extra note is added. At any rate, I don't thing it is an 11th chord, because that is a dominant chord, and it would take the piece out of key.
