Not sure about the exact Gsus4, but I'm sure you could go w/ the G chord progression. Basically, Gmaj, Am, Bm, Cmaj, Dmaj, Em, F#*.

You could prolly just make them all sus4 and they'd sound good, but I don't know how to go about that.

the Am chord sounds kinda like a darker sounding version of the Gsus4.

Well, the Gsus4 chord is more of a transition chord, like diminished, or augmented. Usually it resolves into the same letter. like the Gsus4 would probably sound good just resolving back into Gmaj.

I hope that we could get some real metal out there. I guess A7X a start...
But nu metal does have its moments like Slipknot Mushroomhead and Korn.

hes right alot of those weird chords you see are used for trasitions between phrases
or into key changes sometimes.
for a jazz song ( is it a ballad or up beat??) you would normaly use a 1, 4, 5 pregression like G7 C7 G7 D7 C7 G7
that is what is most that i have noticed
or the progression is switched around
after that you would just improb in a G blues scale
which is G Bb C C# D F G

If it's a jazz song, you'd want extended chords... as in, anything 7th a beyond... for example:

Gmaj7
Am7
Bm7b9
Cmaj7#11
D7
Em7
F#m7b5

one of the common Jazz chord progressions is ii - V - I - vi

which goes like this in the key of G Major:

Am7 - D7 (i like the sound of a Maj7 more) - G7 - Em7

in order to let the chords sound jazzy u must have much 7th's in ur progression but if u have triads more than 7th's it won't sound jazzy and there's no problem with using Diminished,Augmented etc... and the whole Dominant Family

^ make sure you notate your chord progression correctly. minor chords are supposed to be lower case. so you should have ii V I vi instead of II V I VI.

what's the difference if i make the numbers capital ?

Capital implies a major chord, whereas lowercase implies minor.

I=Cmaj7, ii=Dm7
