Gently hold you finger over the string so it's just touching but effectively "deads" the note. They're called dead notes, or percussive notes.

they're ghost notes, press the string lightly so you dont get the note but hard enough so you dont get the harmonics. and what song is that? those notes dont work together at all

Any.

It's best if you don't rest your finger on a natural harmonic.

It doesn't matter. You may want to put two or more fingers on the string, just so you don't get an accidental harmonic. You just put your finger/s on the string wherever it happens to be.

like the others said, just rest your finger on the fret board and not on a harmonic....you can also palm mutet the "already dead note" to better get that sound

Yeah, mute it with your finger, and palm mute as well. That helps me, reduces a lot of harmonic frequencies.

Try to anticipate what note would've been played, if it wasn't muted. Even a muted string has a definite pitch, and you don't want to have a really out of place sound, if you're as picky a listener as I am.
