I was skimming through a few songs to learn and I saw this:

:S It's that string in the middle that's screwing me up

Also, I have my guitar in Drop D and whenever I play the 6th string it makes a nasty sound because it's hitting the fretboard, how can I stop this?

you mute that string i the middle with, im guessing, your index finger...

and i think it should be played in standard..

Just mute the string that hasn't been tabbed so then you only get the tabbed strings ringing. Btw muting means just with one of your fingers just hold it so its not pressing the string against the fret so it doesn't ring. On this chord you could slant your finger that on the first fret across the string you wnt to mute hope i helped

You can either use a finger to touch, but not fret, the A string

Or, the better option, is to use your thumb to pick the E string, and then pluck all the others with your index, middle, and ring finger.

Have your index finger slightly arched or bent so that it touches the A string and stops it ringing out...and you need a higher gauge string for your string thats in D. Its rattling because its too slack

Place your finger lightly on the string you're going to mute. When you play all of them, you get the chord you want, with a dead note there.

Sounds like you have fret buzz. Have you had your guitar set up at a shop? Your action probably needs to be adjusted.

Do a open d power chord. Put you pinky on b/3 and ring on g/2 and open d. Just strum getting the hang of it., then put your index on E whilist muting the a string.
It's much easier to play this in standard.
