    In this page there is no difference in the chords illustrated between the Dsus4 and the Gsus2?

    The only distinction I could find online was that some sites have the 4th string muted on the Dsus4 when played and the Gsus2 that string is played open.

      I know this question is years old but in case anyone else is wondering:

      (This explanation relies on an understanding of musical intervals.)
      A suspended chord is where you replace the 3rd of a chord with another note (usually a perfect 4th or major 2nd). Normally a G chord is “spelled” G-B-D. To get Gsus2, we will replace the B with a major second above G which is an A for a new chord(G-A-D). There are three notes and four strings so we have options on how to play this. In the chord diagram here, they have chosen to double the G (usually a good call to double the root).

      On the other hand, D is normally D-F#-A. To get Dsus2 we replace F# with a perfect fourth above D which is G for a new chord of D-G-A. We now have two theoretically different chords made from the same notes. Here is where your confusion is coming from: Doubling the G in this chord makes absolutely no musical sense. It is a passing tone meant to lead to the next chord. By doubling it, they have made it more important to your ear than it should be. Preferably the D or A should have been doubled. I would recommend playing the second Fret on the G string or omitting the G string entirely as you have seen elsewhere.

      In other words they did it for convenience over musicality.

    The words “throw down my haste in the road” should be ” throw down my ace in the hole”

    @Just Curious

    I know this comment is a year old but just in case anyone else is wondering. Dsus4 is spelled D G A while Gsus2 is spelled G A D. When you go to spell this on the ukulele, it ends up being the same thing. That said, if given a choice I would double the G for the G chord and the D for the D chord if you wanted them to sound different but it’s 6 of one half dozen of the other once it’s live.

    For an easy tutorial on how to play all of this song, try the Ukulele Teacher. He describes it perfectly (:

  • Terry L says:

    The chain of four C chords at the
    end of each line should go “C C-5 C5 C-5”
