Bang for buck = Agile.

If you want to play that stuff, extended scale is a must, I wouldnt get one below 28in. I sold my old 27in 8 for a 30in 7 and I'm much happier. :)

Personally the theory sounds a bit dubious to me. Generally you train how you want to play with guitar.

On the other hand, picking hard sounds sweet imho so it can be worth practising regardless. :p:

Basically I would say a good teacher is priceless. Try and arrange a few lessons with local teachers and see who you click with. A lot of teachers will have no problem doing a "trial" lesson. :)

You're pretty close - saying a chord is extended means it contains notes "beyond" the 7th, so they contain a 9th, 11th or 13th.
