I am accompanying a vocalist on "All I Want For Christmas" this weekend. I have approached the tune several different ways and I cannot seem to find a groove that isn't hokey-pokey-turn-yourself-around!

-Moving bassline with offbeat chords in the rt hand
-Repeated note bassline with "power chord" type sound in the right hand (more edgy, but sounds empty)
-I've tried filling it in with 2nds, or a decending top note and I am just not sure what else to do.

I haven't played around with it but I could hear either a boogie-woogie or a ragtime feel to that song.
