Hello,

If 224432 is a Bm, what's a 224422?
And the 224442 is a B?

yes that is a B, and the other chord is a Bsus2. but you shouldn't be playing the low e string. that would make it a B/F#

could someone explain how the sus2 and the sus4 work?

in the x24422 the C# is replaced with C and not a perfect fifth (F#).

I don't know much about theory so I would appreciate if you could explain!!

The idea is that the third that the chord usually contain is suspended and a different note is used, I think the idea originally developed as a method for getting more tension and release out of slightly standard chord progressions.

The sus2 means that the note used instead of the third is a second, in the case of B that's a C#. Sus4 means it's a forth instead of the third, for B that would be an E. Also worth noting: sus chords usually only use the 2 or the 4, I don't think I've ever seen anyone call anything else a suspension.

cool thank you all guys i understood it.
i have one more if you could help.

X0453X. I found that the notes are D F# C D.
I also found that the chord is called d7/a but how this works?
#7
D7/A means it's a D7 chord, in that case on the 3rd fret, with an A root note.
So the notes are actually A F# C D

Yes It's A F# C D, my mistake. Cool thanks I understood that and I'm pretty happy

Every chord like XY/Z means that it's a XY chord with a Z root note?
