Let's say I'm playing this pentatonic lick:

E|-13p10----10-----------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------13----13-10-13p10-----------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------12-10-12p10


How do I prevent the 10th fret high E from ringing out while playing the 13th fret B string ? Since it's a descending lick I can't really palm mute. Should I be muting it with my ring finger ?

That's certainly one way of doing it, another would be just lifting your index finger ever so slightly so it's muted there.

Really the best solution would be both, that removes the danger of unwanted harmonics sounding.

So for left hand muting, I should be focussing on all my fingers instead of the just the index ?

In the words of the great Guthrie Govan: you should be using any spare piece of flesh to stop things you don't want to sound.
