The light is getting dark now by the time my students leave after lessons. It feels like only a few weeks ago there was still sunshine coming through the windows as we played.
So much for summer. Here'e a great song to remind us of those sunny days. I couldn't find accurate chord sheets for this song online so here it is: "June Hymn" by he Decemberists
The Dsus2/4 chord is a D major chord with an added 2 and a 4. The way to play this is to take a standard C-chord shape and slide it up two frets, like this: X54030
