The best way I found to play this song is to hold a pick between your index and middle fingers and use this for the melody, while strumming the "drum" notes with your thumb. Make sure to strum hard because they'll come out too quietly otherwise. The rhythm comes naturally after a few tries. Enjoy and Merry Christmas (and Happy Hanukkah!) - DJS
