5. Chajinmori

Chajinmori (Also known as chajunmori) = 12/8, fast, with a stress on each dotted crotchet/quarter note, and an accent on the ninth quaver/eighth note.

The accompaniment is required to recognise each melodic phrase and respond accordingly, hence the strike rate as the zither introduces galloping rhythmic filigrees.
