alternte pick the semiquaver rythms, but use down strokes for the rest.Again use
your fretting hand for the palm mutting. Dont worry about hiting the top note of the 
top note on the E chords excatly as written, as these are probaly not intentional.

Use alternate picking.Youll need your forth finger to reach the A in the second beat
in bar 2.
