    I've been playing for a few years and had to take an absence from playing due to personal issues, pain, and a few more reasons. I am just now getting back, but still am struggling to keep parts like this clean.

    I try palm muting, muting with my figners, and what not, but no matter how much I practice I can't clean it up nearly as good as I want to! Any suggestions?

    By "keeping it clean," do you mean muting the zeros after you're done playing them, or am I misunderstanding the question?

    Have you tried muting them with your thumb?
