I've been playing for about 2 years now and just recently began resting my picking hand on my strings when I start shredding or playing something up high or particularly fast. I was wondering if it's anything I should avoid. Thanks

i rest my palm below my thumb on strings above ones I play (obviously not when playing on the low E). I think thats what he's talking about.

I rest the side of my hand on the low strings as if i'm palm muting them, that's what I mean.

I do it, and I think it's good as it mutes all the other strings so you don't get any unwanted noise.

I think he means when his playing on the high e or the b string, he rests his palm to mute out G D A E. which yes i do, but i cant mute out the high E string like slash and co do when i play lower E A D strings. It feels awkward

When I am playing a really fast solo or something, I usually palm mute the lower strings, helps get rid of hitting an unwanted open string, and also when you move onto the lower strings, that palm mute, removes some of the slack so you can sound much neater.
