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.

Didn't you say that you had a stuffed fox that you would occasionally fuck?
