Constance - Make tea, not war: all your bass

I've learned to play "Oh Come All Ye Faithful"! It's like my favorite song ever! And it wasn't hard... The arrangements I saw online were too difficult for me, but I just want to learn the basic melody, and now I have. So I'm excited about it. I also like "We Wish You a Merry Christmas"and also learned that.

I need a musical advice now... How do you play notes of different durations in the left hand and right hand. E.g. the right hand plays dotted quarter note, eighth, quarter note, and the left hand plays three quarter notes[1]... I just can't manage that; it breaks my sense of rhythm. I can do the left hand or the right hand on their own okay, but combining is hard. Let me know if you have any tips.

[1] Picture is worth a thousand words, so here's an excerpt from the song that shows what I mean:

Blow

I would learn the left hand until it was second nature, then just play the left hand and sing the melody while not using your right hand at all. If you can sing the melody while you play and it starts to fall into your head right, then you can start to add the right hand in and it will make sense to you.
