How to Play chord embellishments on the acoustic guitar

Thsi video lesson is on chord embellishments, specifically the use of suspended 2 and suspended 4 chords as little enhancements. Using these easy, little chords as substitutions will enhance your rhythm playing. Hopefully, this will aid in your strumming effectiveness too. We'll learn how to play the chords in 3 different positions each, and how to play them up the neck.

Then we'll apply the same embellishment technique to major 7th, 7th, minor 7th, and minor chords. I'll demo a couple of songs that make use of suspended 2 and suspended 4 chords, and give a brief lesson on Jimmy Buffett's "Margaritaville".
