..3...1....2

-17p14----|
---------15-|---%


ok, when I play this with overdrive on, it always sounds messy, and not just this, most stuff I play with distortion, always get extra strings I accidentally hit to ring...and it pisses the hell out of me.
in ^this example, the 14 keeps sounding when I play the 15 and it sounds bad. Then, (i'm still holding 15 down) and I play the 17 again, the 15 keeps going...

Any tips for using distortion? to make the sound not run all together???

Thin necks make you play faster because guitars with thin necks sound thin and bad, and you play fast to distract people from the bad tone.

Lightly take your finger off the string enough to kill the sound, or take it off completely. And try using your pinky on the 17th fret.

is this one of those (practice slow) things?

When I play 15, I would use the other part of my middle finger the mute the first string. And yes, practice slowly first.

I'd use ..4...1...2 instead. It's much more effecient, and technically (classically) correct.
