Back to the A pattern then it's just rock 'n roll from there on in, though use the D7 pattern after the rock 'n roll E
Try using different variations on the chords to make it more interesting. Such as going from an open E to an E7 plyed as a C7 shape at the fourth fret but missing out the barre and hitting the top and bottom open strings. Try the same with the A:- play it as an E shape at the 5th but miss out the barre (don't hit the open B though). Mess around with it a bit, don't copy it slavishly These are useful variations to add during the singing parts. If you switch it to E, A7, B, these variations work pretty well.
Hey! what do I know anyway? I only play this stuff and it sounds ok to me!
