Hey there!

Been playing guitar on and off very casually for like 2 years, but have just gotten into it seriously this time. There are two things I could use some help with:

1.

I'm not sure how to tackle the chorus of this song, especially this part in particular;

E|--------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------|
G|--7-7-7-9-9-9-11-11-11-12-12-12-14--------|
D|--0-0-0-0-0-0--0--0--0---0---0---0--0-------------|
A|--0-0-0-0-0-0--0--0--0---0---0---0--0--------------|
D|--0-0-0-0-0-0--0--0--0---0---0---0--0--------------|

What is the best finger placement for making sure that you don't hit the last two strings?

2. Which finger(s) do you normally use for power chords in Drop-D tuning? Do you just fret all 3 strings with your index?

Thanks in advance

The underside of your fretting hand fingers should naturally mute the the unused strings, if your pick does go astray and strikes the the top two strings, it shouldn't matter, as your fretting hand will be taking care of that.

Drop D power chords yes, one finger barres.
