Notice how this section of the song has a lot of tension and release in the progression. At first it seems simple enough just going between A major and G#mi and land on F#mi. But where it gets really interesting is over the E chord where we'll introduce some nice tension into the progression.

Again we're only playing triads or just part of full chords. We start out with and E major, then we move to an E augmented - what that means is that we raise the fifth one half step from B to C. Then we move on to an E6 chord but now using a voicing where we're playing the tonic, third and the 6th. We end the E movement by playing an E7, and check out just how nicely this leads us into the next chord.

After that we hit up an F#7,then we go up to our B7sus4 to B7, then go back and do it again. The 2nd time we'll end on our A/B (another form of a "sus" chord) with the rhythm from the earlier hits, be sure to check that out.
