I know how to mute when playing with a pick, as i play guitar too, but what about finger picking? For example in Orion, by metallica, in the intro you play 7th fret on the A string and open E string, and im having a hard time trying to make the E string not to ring. Also, when playing D and G strings do i mute like the E with the palm and the A with the anchor thumb? both with palm? with index finger?

Also, I place my thumb on the E string when I don't play it, moving off to play with my index/middle. The cool thing about this method is that you can also strum with your thumb like a classical guitarist.
i always use the palm...unless you have to play chords on the top 3 string then mut with your left thumb
Yeah like Water boy said, I pick my thumb up off the pick up when I play on the D and G string.
