you mute the a string with your middle or ring finger and strum.
I play a guitar strung with Yngwie's chest hair
mute the A-string.
Thomas hopes to not have offended anyone with this post. No responsibility whatsoever is taken for any spelling or grammar mistakes, should there be any.

Put your Index finger on the fifth fret and put you Ring or Pinky (whichever is more comfortable) on the 7th fret. Then take your middle and rest it on the A string but don't push down like you normally would. Then obviously you strum all 3 strings but with the A string muted it wont make a sound.
Those are octave notes - 2 together. as mentioned earlier, if strumming you'd mute the A string and just strum the E to D strings - think Tom Petty "the waitingis the hardest part". You could also use two fingers to pluck them together in unison.
Moving on.....
thanks! that was the only thing keeping me from playing "the weak willed" by all that remains
