ok, this might be a dumb question, but i'm gonna ask anyway. i've seen some "2" chords --such as C2, but i can't figure uot what C2 is. i've checked places and can't find anything like it. what does the 2 stand for?
any help would be appreciated
~Thx

I'm not sure exactly what the 2 stand for in terms of the terminology, but the only C2 I've seen is played X32033 (That's in EADGBe format). FFH uses it a lot and plays the G's in the same manner with the 2 bottom strings fretted at 3. Anywhoo, that's my idea.

I'll try to sound as far from technical as i can...

The two in C2 or in A2 or the nine in C9 means that you must add that note (the second or the ninth) to the chord. So when you hold the B string at the third fret, you are adding the second to the C chord. It has to do with all the scales in different keys and such. Same with seventh chords (A7, D7, Em7). You are just adding the needed notes. Get the chord list from the CGR site, I printed it out and use it all the time. Hope it helps...

If you are using a C2, the 2 means you play the second from the root, in a C chord, the root is the C, so, the second from the C is a D. So instead of playing C, E and G in the C chord, you play C, D and G.
Same thing with the 7th chords, just add the 7th from the root.
If you play piano, the second chord is called the ninth chord, same thing.

Sorry if i've confused anyone.

Actually it was very clear (and helpful) because C2 or anything + 2 chords can be difficult to understand.

Maybe you should be teaching music GzusPhreek2k. You've got a good knac of expressing music in words (not something I'm good at if you've read all 67 posts I've done...I LEARNED ME TO SPOKE PERFEKT ENGLISH!)

Is C2 another name for Csus2? I play the X32033 chord alot, and I always called it Csus2, because I remembered seeing it called that before. Just wondering if I was calling it the right name.

yes, C2 and Csus2 are the same. "sus" just means to add on that note. it usually means the 4th but since it said 2, you play 2. music theory class is useful once in a very great while!

"sus" also belies an intent to resolve the chord into a triad form at a later point in the music...in other words, to "un-sus" at some point in time

"sus" means suspension, and it's not usually used with a second chord.
