When you have a chord like this:

E: --------
B: --------
G: ---14--
D: ----x---
A: ---12--
E: --------

When I strum it really fast, I can't help but hit the low E string.
How can I prevent it from making any sound?

I play this using my index finger for the A string and my pinky for the G string. I mute the E string with my index finger while im playing the A string. So essentially, you could use your index finger to play the note on the A string AND mute the E at the same time.

If you practice enough you should be able to mute every string while playing that.
Well......I have big balls.
touch it (the low E) lightly with the tip[ of your index finger or whatever ones pressing the 12 note thing

Ring + Index to fret.
Middle to mute E string!

You could also barre the 11th fret, muting all those strings, and fret the 12 and 14 however you want. Easy.
Those are called octaves =]

when playing octaves, you've gotta play them like power chords, mute the E string with your index finger and the rest with your ring finger. When I play octaves on the D string I mute the strings with my middle finger because its awkward to do it any other way, for me.
