So how am I not supposed to hit the string in between those chords? Please help because I'm confused.

This is the correct one.

You would only mute it if there were "X"'s on the line in between.
"Ultimate"-Guitar is the worst website on the internet. Polluted with unintelligent mongoloids.

That's what I was thinking but it's a Trivium song, and I thought the muted string would affect the sound..

If its trivium then its probably too fast to fingerpick. Just mute it, it will produce only very little sound when you mute that string, you wouldn't be able to hear it. Just listen to Jimi Hendrix's "Fire". It's an octave powerchord like the example you have, but Jimi picks it, and definately doesn't fingerpick it, and you still can't hear the muted string

Although on songs like Hallowed Be Thy Name by Iron Maiden, when its a chord over more than one string, then you can't mute it and you have to fingerpick
