Your goal is to play this very fast, but do it slow while learning. 
For best effect muffle the bass strings with the heel of your palm.
The last section, with the bass runs, is the easiest to finger
but the hardest to play right. You have to play the chords at the
beginning of every other measure *just for the first beat* and
then muffle the strings immediately.  This is hard to do. 
And then open it all up for the final cadence.
