The A major chord has the notes of A C# and E.

In the 2nd measure, you play the A major chord, but start on the C# note, fourth fret. Notes C#, E and A. ie 4-2-2.

In the 3rd measure, you start on the 7th fret, which is the E note. Notes E, A and C#. ie. 7-7-6.

You should be able to figure out the next sequence of notes.
