I have a slight problem when changing from strumming chords to playing lead. Whenever I change from chords onto lead guitar, I always end up hitting 2 strings, instead of the 1 that I want to.
For example, in Blink-182's Dammit


e-------------------------------------------------------
B-------------------------------------------------------
G--5-5-5-5-5-5------------------------------------------
D--5-5-5-5-5-5--5-5-5-5-5-5--7-7-7-7-7-7--3-3-3-3-3-----
A--3-3-3-3-3-3--5-5-5-5-5-5--7-7-7-7-7-7--3-3-3-3-3-----
E---------------3-3-3-3-3-3--5-5-5-5-5-5--1-1-1-1-1-----


Then, I whenever I try to change to

E--------------------------------------------|
B--------------------------------------------|
G--------------------------------------------|
D------0-0-2-----0-0-2-----0-0-2-----2-2-0---|
A--3-3-----------------0-0-------------------|
E------------3-3-----------------1-1---------|


I often end up playing the bottom e string, or D string as well as the first note

learn how to mute other strings with your left hand...yeah LEFT hand (the one on your fretboard) and try to be more accurate...
I played that live a few times jumping around and singing...it's easy...but it's punk so who cares if once in a while you pick more than just what you intended to :P

I got crap to do, okay? Counter-Strike isn't going to play itself.

basically practice dude... work on your accuracy. Its a pain in the ass but in the long run it will pay off

dude...I don't care what people think about blink 182 and about me.
Blink 182 is a sub-genre of punk if people like it or not.
I like them, I like them cause they're funny, they know how to cheer up the crowd...who cares if I sing better than Tom DeLonge at 15...he's still hilarious and mark as well...
and for all the screwy metal heads out here...get over it, they're more famous than you!
