Yoyoyoyo! Muffinz is back in da house!

Anyways, today my teacher gave me and another guitarist the job for accompanying the St. Lucia-show when school ends for winter. We got the chords and the melody for the song. So what I'm wondering now is how would you do the rhythm? At first I thought that some fingerpicking would be cool, but I'm not sure if we would be loud enough (because there is like 10-15 singers, although no mices afaik). Then I got the idea that my guitarist-friend would play some kind of rhythm with just the chords and I would incorperate the melody in some way (kinda like the Silent Night song here on justinguitar), but would it be too much or would I even be heard? Then we have the most basic alternative that we settle for a rhythm and both of us play the same thing, but that may be too muddy?

Anyways, how would you do it?

Here's a link to the song (yeah, I know that this whole Lucia-thing is quite dull, but traditions are traditions):

Oh, btw, I play a steel-stringed accoustic and he a nylon-stringed one (although it might be possible for him to borrow our teachers steel-stringed) and sorry if my english isn't correct, but hopefully the message got through.

At my school we did fingerpicking on steel strings and soft full chords on a nylon

edit: on the steel stringed, do the chords at 5-7:th position, and play open chords on the nylons
