You already know what your problem is, you're probably muting the D string with whatever finger is fretting A string. Make sure you're playing with the tips of your finger and not the 'padded front...

He's fretting the note he wants with one finger and muting the strings he doesn't want to ring out with his other fingers. There's really not much more to it than that, practice by muting all the...

A picture so we can see the damage? I've restrung my guitars many many times and never cracked my bridge with a pin.

Don't hesitate to try a few different types of strings over a few months. I have .13s on one acoustic and .12s on another and I like them both for different reasons.

You need to learn chords. That way you'll know which notes can be played with which notes. You should learn what each interval sounds like and how to play them anywhere on the guitar.
