What is a 20th note?!? 

A "20th note" is five evenly spaced notes per quarter note. The term "quintuplet" can be used, but I think if a quintuplet as more of a polyrhythmic concept than an actual subdivision. 

In this series, we will look at both the 5:4 polyrhythm, and the 4:5 polymeter.

-  Groupings of five's can create a very interesting tension in the rhythmic landscape. Grouping five's as sixteenth notes can give the effect of the time slowing down.

- Groupings of fives as 20th notes will present a unique sound and subdivision that to the untrained ear can sound very crazy.
