7. Sesanjoshi

Sesanjoshi = 4/4, furiously fast.

The speed and intricacy now requires the accompanist to give little more than an initial downbeat to each measure, sometimes even less, missing out the second downbeat in each pair of measures. The drum drops out completely for a final senza misura section that neatly balances the opening tasurum.
