yes, there is an open D, mute low E an A strings with your thumb and high E,B,G with index finger leaving open D string unmutted...good luck !

OKay say i muted them and i played the d STring how would i mute it to play the 7-9 part on the G string (not the dirty kind)

The way I play is to mute all the non-sounding strings by barrings my middle finger across all the strings and also palm muting.

Its a bit sloppy to do it this way since your not really relying on accuracy and instead relying on the muting technique, but it works since you can play wildly with a lot more energy

With the tips of your fingers. When playing the open D part, your hand should be positioned that your thumb hangs over the top muting the Low-E and A strings. Then you have the open D string. Then your index finger should be muting G-B-E. When it comes time to play the index finger on the 7, your hand position stays the same... Only when you press down on the 7, make sure your finger tip is touching the D string. So fret it with the side of your finger or face of your finger rather than the tip.
