The chords in measure eleven are actually a little tricky to fret. The first one is no big deal, but switching to the next one is hard, especially at a fast tempo, and you want as short a break as possible between the two. Practice going from the A6 to the A7.
A6

A7

For the A6, use your 1 finger to fret the A on the first string, 4 to fret the F# on the second string, and 2 to fret the C# on the third string. Then for the A7, move your 1 down to the G on the first string, use your 3 for the E on the second string, and your 4 for the C# on the third string. Now you're in a good position to play the lick that follows those chords.
