    REQ: Strumming pattern for Mera Joota Hai Japani

    Hey all,

    I need suggestions for a good strumming pattern for Mera Joota Hai Japani sung by Mukesh from Shri 420.

    The chords that I have finally arrived at (based on the key used by my accompanying vocalist) are:

    Music: Em/ D/ G
    Mukhda: Em/ D / Em
    Interlude music: E/ G
    Stanza: E/ B/ E

    The strumming pattern that I am using by instinct is:
    DUD/ DUD/ DU

    It sounds okay and peppy but I am not sure if it is correct because the third down comes without a free strumming motion going up.

    Can someone suggest improvements to this pattern or let me know of another good pattern that will make the song sound peppy? I have a bunch of vocalists singing along and of course there is a keyboard providing the melody and rhythm.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    The song can be heard here:

    Thanks in advance.
