◊ Root Note: A

◊ Major Second: B

◊ Perfect Fifth: E

A suspended 2nd chord differs from a major or minor chord in that its third has been replaced by a major second. If the third and second are both present, the chord is an add2:
  • AADD2: A – B – C♯ – E

  • AmADD2: A – B – C – E

A sus2 chord also doubles as an inversion of a sus4. For example, the second inversion of the Asus2 triad (E – A – B) is the root position of Esus4.
