How would you play something like

--------

i tried muting the string with my fretting hand by lightly placing my fingers on it and picking but the sound ends up really different from the video

in the video he lifts his hand and brings it down hitting the strings but i have no idea how to do that and strum at the same time

Use the first finger to play the F# on the E string, while muting the rest of the strings with the same finger.

Muting is really basic don't worry you will get the hang of it by just doing it.
#3
first finger on the 2nd fret and lightly lay the rest of your first finger in the A and D strings muting them..thats how id play it. learning to mute unsued strings is kinda tricky but it well worth the practise. as it cuts out all the unwanted noise.

Do you have a link to the video? Seeing as you mention him raising his hand, it almost sound like it uses slapping.
