Start by learning all of the R7 chord shell notes. You should be able to look at the chord symbol and say out loud the name of the root and the 7th. Once you can do this, try playing the R7 chord shell along with the melody. Go line-by-line until you feel comfortable playing the chords along with the melody. Practice this until you can comfortably play the entire piece with shells.
