So there are a few easy walks on the bass note that are semi-important and the piano
does them in the real song. When I show them I'll only show the relevant strings. Like for
the first run I only show the A and the D strings but it really means:

Pay close attention to what these chords are called and their voicings. Don't use the
ones that chord books suggest, use these:

Eadd9 (024100@1) Etype2    *A*     Amaj7 (x02120@1) A6 (x04xxx@1)    A/C#e--2 (042220@1)   e--4      e--0    e--4    e--2    e--0-|
B--0    B--0      B--4    B--2    B--2    B--2-|
G--1    G--1      G--2    G--2    G--2    G--2-|
D--2    D--2      D--2    D--2    D--2    D--2-|
A--2    A--2      A--0    A--0    A--0    A--4-|
E--0    E--0      E--0    E--0    E--0    E--0-|

When those A chords are melting away at the ends of some of those lines (led me to
today...), you'll see that my Amaj7 and my *A* will be part of an easy line that should just
move your pinkie down a note at a time and keep the meat of the A chord intact. Like 
this or something similar:
   A6 (x04xxx@1) A (x02220@1) *A*   Ae--2----0----0----0-| (x02220@1)B--2----2----4----2-|
