Variations Of The Open E Chord

  • by

Here’s an easy way to understand variations of the E chord. We’ll talk about the Esus2, Esus4, E6, and EMaj7th chords, all of which can serve as a substitute of the regularĀ E major chord. So, if you’re playing a song that uses the E chord, you can use one of these chords instead to spice things up.
