    More advanced chord help..

    Okay. So I've been teaching myself music theory for a while now, got the basics sorted. I understand chords can be based on notes in a scale, using any chord e.g. Chord I-VII or whatever, I can figure that bit out. I understand they should have a mix of minor + major chords, or augmented and diminished to create interesting progressions and make tension.

    One part I don't understand, and can't find help with, is when do you incorporate the 7th + 9th, suspended ect. chords? I've used them before (stealing chord progressions haha) but i can't figure out how to use them myself. I understand they add flavour to the progression, and I understand how to build them, just not where to add them to a progression.

    I'm not a genius in musical theory so if someone could take the time to explain this to me, it would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance.
