Palm mute, or just plain mute?

Well for palm muting, you lay your palm lightly just above the bridge on the strings you want to mute (if that makes any sense). If you just want to mute a string or strings, lightly place your finger anywhere on a string and it should make a sort of clicking noise if you play it. Hopefully this makes sence.

If you search in lessons on this site, you should be able to find the scales your looking for.

Edit: I searched and came up with this:

http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/m/misc_scales/essential_scales_tab.htm

that should be good.
