Is there an easy way to mute the lower strings while playing a tapping part, eg: the intro to Iron Maiden's Pashendale?

very confused, where are you trying to pick in pashendale?
Why did I say I was picking? I'm an idiot. I meant to say just muting the strings while I tap.
When you tap, rest your (tapping) palm over the other strings to prevent them ringing out.
Yea, but when I do that when playing a Vai song, I get a scratching noise from the lower strings because my picking hand has to move to tap on different frets and the palm of the picking hand brushes with the lower strings.
Put a rubber band around the nut. (firmly but not to firm, but not loose)
Good idea, but it wouldn't work because the song goes quickly into a power chord riff after the tapping intro.
