Ok, i think this is the right forum, im trying the song The Sound of Truth by As I Lay Dying and I notice that there are 2 muted open notes on the d string inbetween the the g string notes. and even after about 6 hours of practice i just cannot figure out a way to play it correctly.

e|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
b|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
g|-7-----7-10-----10----9----9----9-12---12----10---10-14----14------|
d|---0-0------0-0----0-0--0-0--0-0----0-0---0-0--0-0-----0-0----0-0--|
a|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
d|-------------------------------------------------------------------|

What technique would help with this, or is it something ridiculously simple that i am overcomplicating somehow.

vid of killrbuckeye playing it:

if you play it right, your right hand should be making even up/downstrokes at a consistent tempo. i.e. it'll be a downstroke on every beat. the first note after each string switch is a downstroke.
