do you guys advise to use fretting hand 1st finger or picking hand thumb to keep strings in a way of bent string quiet?

well i think i need help a lot
i am not new to guitar, but i am new to elecric guitar, to blues rock and overdriven sounds

my problem is - i can't do bends quickly and not sloppy at the same time. idk what to use - my thumb/palm on right hand or first finger on fretting hand to keep other strings from ringing out while releasing bends. overdrive shows how awful things are.
i am feeling so weird while doing bends. because i can't do them properly, i cant learn a whole load of songs i like. i concentrate a lot while doing bends

I use both. Use your picking hand to mute the low strings and your fretting hand to mute the high strings. It'll come with practice.

I've found that doing bends is alot about training your ear just as much as your hand. Once your ear can tell when you're in tune, your hand will know when to stop. Practice sloowww blues songs (download tuxguitar, some powertabs and set it to half tempo or lower).

justinguitar has some good lessons on this too.
main point is, it'll take years to develop, but it will develop
this is a post. there are many like it but this one is mine
