If something like such comes up;

G -3---
D ------
A -3----
E -2----

What technique is used to play it? Should I just use a percussion note on the D, or is there a specific way of doing it?

Use one of the fingers hitting the 3rd fret notes to mute the middle one. Either the tip of the finger below it or the lower portion of the ball of the finger above that string. It should just rest lightly against it to mute it correctly.

What you're actually playing is this:

G -3---
D -X----
A -3----
E -2----

finger pick the three notes, percussion note the D string, use voodoo to have the G string play itself. those are the only ways i can think of right now
