just put your fingers on the string lightly, so it sounds like something 'percussive' (don't know how to express it), in the same position as you were before...

listen to the song closely, you can hear it
Gear:
Fender Jazzmaster
Boss DS-2
Digitech RP150 (with Line6 EX-1 Exp pedal)

Play the F5, Lay your hand flat across the strings, strum, play the Ab5
Gingers Unite

To mute it, put your left hand (assuming you're a righty, and pushing down on the frets with your left hand) on the strings, not pushing down the frets but hovering right on them. I'm sure someone could explain it better than I can,

I learnt it by playing it as a bass line first and then adding the remainder of the chord into the right hand pattern!

Well Its Like When I Play It That The 3rd 1-3-3 Part Should Be Removed
