I claw my hand so as my wrist is bent at almost a 90 degree angle. I find this a bit uncomfortable, so I ask everyone else so I can compare.

It's hard to say, I do whatever comes naturally, when my hand is on the fret board when I'm sitting down there is a 90 degree angle between my hand and forearm, it is much greater when I stand up. Do whatever comes naturally, while still holding correct posture, it should stop hurting after practice

Playing high on the fretboard can be much trickier -- especially when using
certain techniques. It's pretty much a technique unto itself. You mostly have
to go with what is going to cause the least amount of tension. A lot of times
I'll remove my thumb from the back of the neck and bring it up and over with the
other fingers. It simply makes it easier to do certain things like pulloffs that way.

EDIT: Oh maybe I misread the post. I thought bottom was the neck near the
pickups.

That's what I mean.

I guess I should have said the top then. It's just that I always called to parts closest to the pickups the bottom.

Sorry for the confusion!
