Since 5/4 has an extra quarter note beat, it's going to have a somewhat "extended" feel to it.

In this particular example, we're going to be strumming some basic chords to the 5/4 time signature. For the first four beats, we're just going to strum quarter notes, then on the 5th beat, we're going to strum two eighth notes.

Be sure to count out loud!
