The rhythm guitar is just building on an E7 chord, building the dynamics with 8th notes. We start with just the low E string open and an E on the A string. At first we're going to palm mute the 8th notes, but as the bars go along we open it up.

Then we start adding in the chord, and as we go along we make the 8th notes more and more staccato. So you're building on a total of 4 bars on an E7 chord and you'll start small to grow the dynamics. This is going to set up the verse in A major perfectly.
