A Shape Barre Chords: Sus4

Let’s continue our Suspended Chords exploration with A Shape Barre Chords: Sus4!


I don’t understand the diagram for C Sus4. Where is the barre and there is no C at all …
Please explain? Thanks!

The chord is labelled as Csus4 so you have to consider that the red root note is at fret 3 of the A string.
The 3rd finger is holding a barre across the D G and B strings at fret 5. That is the barre used here.
The 4th finger is also being used to add the sus4 note on the B string.
An option thais also available is to fully barre with 1st finger from the A to the high E string too.
Justin tends to mute and teaches muting on high E string.
