just find a way that's most comfy with you, you could either mute it with your right hand's thumb, or with an unused finger of your left hand... you really need to find a way yourself, what's best for you^^

This makes me want to go punch my English teacher in the face....

What i think he means is that he plays the e string, then he goes to the g string, but the e string is still ringing? Is that right?

If so, use your right hand (if you're right handed) to mute the e string after you play it

It's not the teacher's fault, the teacher is not the one who didn't learn to spell. It's the student who didn't learn to spell, probably reading guitar magazines in class and trying to read the spelling lessons while playing guitar...didn't I see that somewhere else just a little while ago???

And yeah, Seagull is right, it's difficult to try and help out when you can't decipher the question...I've tried to read it 4 times and I'm still not sure just what he's asking.
Hmmm...I wonder what this button does...

well, im assuming youre left handed by your post. Either use your left thumb or hand to stop the string or stop it with your right hand with a finger that isnt being used for holding the string to the fret. I use the latter method, but im going to try and adjust my playing style as i can get unwanted harmonics at times.

We've found by experience that people who are careless and sloppy writers are usually also careless and sloppy at thinking (often enough to bet on, anyway). Answering questions for careless and sloppy thinkers is not rewarding; we'd rather spend our time elsewhere.

So expressing your question clearly and well is important. If you can't be bothered to do that, we can't be bothered to pay attention. Spend the extra effort to polish your language. It doesn't have to be stiff or formal — in fact, our culture values informal, slangy and humorous language used with precision. But it has to be precise; there has to be some indication that you're thinking and paying attention.

Spell, punctuate, and capitalize correctly. Don't confuse “its” with “it's”, “your” with “you're”. Don't TYPE IN ALL CAPS; this is read as shouting and considered rude. (All-smalls is only slightly less annoying, as it's difficult to read)

More generally, if you write like a semi-literate boob you will very likely be ignored. So don't use instant-messaging shortcuts. Spelling "you" as "u" makes you look like an semi-literate boob to save two entire keystrokes. Worse: writing like a l33t script kiddie hax0r is the absolute kiss of death and guarantees you will receive nothing but stony silence (or, at best, a heaping helping of scorn and sarcasm) in return.

If you are asking questions in a forum that does not use your native language, you will get a limited amount of slack for spelling and grammar errors — but no extra slack at all for laziness (and yes, we can usually spot that difference).
