I'm a beginner pretty much, when it comes to solos...

I want to try to play clean, but there always to be one or two strings besides the one I want to play that ring out.

This doesn't happen only on solos, but also on quick hammer-ons/pull-offs, like the Thunderstruck intro.

So what should I do to be able to play clean?

The inside of your fretting hand is meant to stop the strings under your hand from ringing and your picking should mute the stop the strings from above your fretting hand from ringing.

Guthrie Govan has a Book i believe called cutting-edge techniques which explains this.

You could also find something on youtube and a lesson about it perhaps on this website

For thunderstruck as it's all left hand tapping on the same string I use my right hand to mute the strings: thumb/palm across strings 3-6 and index finger on string 1.

coordinate your picking and fretting hands so they only hit the notes you're supposed to play and not others, now for muting played notes, listen to Livingtime

Using the bottom parts of your fingers to mute lower strings
using the fat part of your hand to mute the higher strings

Left hand = index finger mainly.

Right hand = palm, thumb, unused fingers.
