when i alt pick like, lets says Aeolian up and down using the hopscotch method, i always put the meat of my palm just above where the string the the bridge meet. I dont press on the string, but just slightly, to kinda mute it, because i play with a lot of distortion(i play death metal), so i get a lot of dirty stuff like the gain covering up the notes, natural harmonic ringing everywhere, you know. I kinda do this too with my sweeping techning, (still slow on sweeping), so yea, is it bad?

As long as you're not having trouble it's not bad.
