Each chord has 2 basses:

E, F#7 - 6 strum 4 strum
A, B7 - 5 strum 6 strum

Using what I call a "quiet" right hand will help us achieve the speed this song requires. Hit the bass with your thumb for the "boom", then curl your fingers and drop them across your strings for the "chuck". Your goal is to keep your thumb over the bass strings!
