Well....to play a mute aka dead note, you don't hold the fret all the way down. It is an extremely simple task, don't make it harder then it should be. Say your play 5 on the E fret. Instead of holding it down all the way to the fret board, don't have the string touch the fret board. Hold it down enough where it's not making an open note.

mmake sure you're not doing it over the 5th,7th, 12th or any other fret where you could get an unwanted harmonic instead of a mute.
