These chords are even more sweeter when you use your passing notes well.


Note:


The quartal chord is talking only about your left hand... And does not apply to any chord you didn't see it written in front...




Also, looking at the chords, let's take the first chord for example:

The left hand played quartal chord while the right hand played just the C# which is enharmonic in nature... It's as simple. But putting them together will give u F#MajorSus2....




And you don't have to always use it as your 1 chord. Like I said you can use it... It means only when the song you are playing warrant so...

It's just chord coloring....
