I'm trying to learn it but whenever I try it turns into a huge mess, like I can play it almost clean but when I let go all my strings resonate and it sounds awful. How can I stop the other strings from resonating?

you could put a hair band on the first fret or tie a rag. or try to mute the string with your picking hand

Try resting the palm or the back of your left hand on the strings. If that doesn't work, then try watching a video of Steve Vai playing the song, and study his technique. It worked for me.

Yeah, I guess I was using too much of my palm to do it, after shifting my position a bit it sounds pretty good, though not very full like it does in the intro. Anyway, thanks.
