you could just cheat and put a hair tie on the first fret

but in terms of fret hand muting, what i try and do is mute the string above with the tip of my finger as i sweep through..... sounds stupid but i cant think of a better way to explain it....

It's called palm muting. Try to just lightly touch the bump of your palm pretty close to the bridge.

I believe FreePower threw together a vid on this...check out the tube.

yea i already do that and that method only works well with down sweeping and i wanna get even cleaner then that.

i kinda wanted a method on how to learn this too cause i understand how it works i just dont know how to go at it.. and i have tried just going at it.
thanks guys
