Just find the thirds:
- Move it down a fret if it's a minor chord for sus2.
- Move it down 2 frets if it's a major chord for sus2.

- Move it up a fret if it's a major chord for sus4.
- Move it up 2 frets if it's a minor chord for sus4.

Work it out from there.

Or you could just take a regular triad guitar shape and turn that into suspendeds.

Csus2
D-----5---------
A-----5---------
E-----8---------

Csus4
D-----5---------
A-----8---------
E-----8---------

Gsus4 starting with the E shape, and moving through CAGED

Code:
---8--------15 -3-8-8---13-13 -5-7-7---12-12 -5-5-10--12-12 -5---10--10- -3-------


From here, replace the 4th with a 2nd to get sus2 chords.

ok ty ... the last two post am getting it alittle... but if u could break it down/simplify it for me just a lil bit more "am still learning",so anyway stuff about replacing the fourth with the second.. i think if i saw a sus2 and sus4 with the cage as and example think i can figure out the rest kinda what MDC just did.... except show the sus2

and for the morons who have no life bout to post something stupid ,regarding this post,
(u dont kno what that is, omgsh how dum are u , figure it out urself noob) <---- post like this... uhm One day all these beginner/intermediate guitar players u talked down on and were being a total prick towards, they are all gonna be pro/master guitar players.... keep that in mind

^ That.

TS. Just...
- Grab your barre chord.
- Find the third.
- Move it so it's a major second or a perfect fourth.
- Viola.

Also, please type properly. It's hard to read when you type like that. :P
