    Is there a site that will let you play a chord of your choosing?

    In particular I want to hear a G9sus chords....
     
  2. Why not just play it on your bass? It would be 15-12-15-14, wouldn't it?

    EDIT: No, I don't think that's it after all.

    I'm in the process of building a chord pattern mp3 libaray.

    Here a couple of chord patterns with their mp3 file, including C9sus4

    C9sus4

    You could possible omit the third and fifth, if playing in harmony with another instrument.
    For Example: Bass plays the Root, Extended, and Altered tones, and the Guitar could play just the Triad tones.
    Code:
    E  A  D  G
    
    
    |  E  |  D  
    C  F  Bb |  
    |  |  |  |  
    |  G  |  |  
    |  |  |  |  
    [U]|  |  |  |[/U]  12   
    
    C9
    Code:
    |  E  |  D  
    C  |  Bb |  
    |  |  |  |  
    |  G  |  |  
    |  |  |  |  
    [U]|  |  |  |[/U]  12
    
    Csus4
    Code:
    |  |  |  |  
    C  F  |  |  
    |  |  |  |  
    |  G  C  |  
    |  |  |  |  
    [U]|  |  |  |[/U]   12 
    
    C7
    Code:
    |  E  |  |  
    C  |  Bb |  
    |  |  |  |  
    |  G  |  |  
    |  |  |  |  
    [U]|  |  |  |[/U]

    ....creepers.

    Kiwi, thanks for the input, and sounds. That's a good idea.

    In the first example, why the dominant 7th? Maybe I just need a good chord dictionary.

    That's a good web site you found.

    9th chords are always built on Dominant chords. In the case of C9, it's basicly a C7 with a 9th interval added (D). Or you could say that a major 3rd is superimposed in the Bb, because D is a major 3rd (2 wholetones) from Bb.

    I found this too:

    By placing the major triad a 2nd below the bass note we can make a dominant 9sus chord. Ex: you want to make a G9sus chord, simply place a F triad on a G bass note and you'll get the sound of the 9sus chord. F is a 2nd below G: F/G = G9sus
