Deck The Halls

Here's a little ditty just in time for the holidays. Use it to win friends and influence people. There's nothing particularly original in here, but it might take a while to get the fingerings down and get it up to speed. Note that you don't ever leave the open position except for mms. 11-12 and the first half of measure 15.
I just took the basic chord structure of the tune and applied a fingerpicking pattern that relies heavily on droning the open G string. For more examples of this type of right-hand technique, see my Blackbird Fingerpicking lesson.
