I always keep my thumb behind the neck, pointed upward, but do I have to tilt the neck upward for a better action? Or rotate it forward? This is a tight task, so I need to have a cleaner stance and...

Stretching from 2nd to 7th fret (Dokken - Lightning Strikes Again)

This one's difficult. I wonder how these two players pulled it off-

Cover 1 (http://youtu.be/2JkbQ1PbZko)

Cover 2 (http://youtu.be/_r7B260d_EE)

I just prefer Jackson and possibly Ibanez. I find ESPs to be overpriced, and am not at all comfortable with their branding/pricing structure. Given a choice, unless there's a mahogany-bodied Ibanez...
