Here's a split bar progression in D Major in 4/4 time. Make sure you take time to work out what the chords are according to the numbers in the key (functional harmony) before trying this progression.

Remember that you have a split bar here. A split bar means that you'll be splitting the bar with more than one chord. In our example, each chord in the split bar gets two counts.

Keep in mind that there are many ways to strum these chords. I'm using a particular strum style to play this example for simplicity's sake. Use the backing track at the jam station and put your style on this progression.
