I was playing a few chord progressions and "made up" a few chords by "accident" can anyone tell me if I have named them right. I know chord theory and how scales relate to their chords, I just need clarification on this.

D7Sus4

e|--3---| G
B|--1---| C
G|--2---| A
D|--0---| D
A|--x---|
E|--x---|



E7Sus4

e|--0---| E
B|--0---| B
G|--2---| A
D|--0---| D
A|--2---| B
E|--0---| E

Yes, although it seems that in order to get a more suspended sound you'd use stacked fourths and 5ths.

And your E7sus4 notes are wrong, look at the G string.

Lol, thanks for pointing out that silly little error.

This may sound stupid but what does stacked 4ths and 5ths mean..... I am assuming it means the two notes are directly above each other when played.

It means that the interval between each note is a 4th or a 5th.

Most chords are voiced in 3rds; take a look at this Cmaj7 chord:

e|----
B|--0-  B
G|--0-  G
D|--2-  E
A|--3-  C
E|----

C to E is a major 3rd.
E to G is a minor 3rd.
G to B is a major 3rd.

It's one 3rd on top of another.

However, with a sus chord, it's often voiced in 4ths.

e|----
B|--1-  C
G|--3-  Bb
D|--3-  F
A|--3-  C
E|----

C to F is a perfect 4th.
F to Bb is a perfect 4th.
Bb to C is a major 2nd.

See how none of them are 3rds? This gives a more anonymous, suspended sound.

Chords that are stacked 4ths are called quartal chords.
