Absus Ukulele Chord Explanation

The Absus chord (also known as a G#sus) contains the notes Ab-Db-Eb.

In this case, the "sus" in the chord name, which means suspended is referring to a "sus4" note.

To build an Absus chord, take the suspended fourth chord formula (1-4-5) and apply it to the Ab major scale (Ab, Bb, C, Db, Eb, F, G).

Identify the first, fourth, and fifth scale degrees in the Ab major scale which are Ab-Db-Eb, which gives you an Absus chord.
