This is called a Sus2 chord (Suspended 2nd) because you are suspending the 2nd interval into the chord, rather than the 3rd. You can then resolve the chord to the normal triad shape to create a nice... See More

You have 10 minutes, we all do. I would really challenge you to set aside 10 minutes each day this week and try this routine. After one week I know you will already notice a difference.
