So let's say there's a situation like this,
[eigth notes)

F rest F# rest G rest A rest ||

Would you..

A) F ..place ur palm on and off the bridge quickly.. F#...etc

b) F ..lift your fretting hand till the sound stops and press back down immediately with F#..etc


Cause all I've been doing is A. I was wondering on what situation does each one get used? And is there a difference in the overall tone?

Depends on your set up.
For me, using a high gain set up, I'd mute with both hands. Palm mute with the right, and lay my fingers across the strings with the left.

Both. My picking hand is too close to the bridge to mute it fully quickly enough, and my fretting hand may hit unwanted harmonics. Hence, both.

Junior's usually at least a little terse, but he knows his stuff. I've always read his posts in a grouchy grandfather voice, a grouchy grandfather with a huge stiffy for alternate picking.
Besides that, he's right this time. As usual.

Both.

Is it just me or is that word starting to sound really weird?

I usually use left hand when I'm doing a really gallopy fast picking pattern when I don't have time to constantly move my right hand on/off the strings.
