So it seems like the proper way to do bends is to hook your thumb over the neck to get leverage. However, most people also say that the propery position for your thumb is on the back of the neck. So, if you're playing a song with bends, do you keep your thumb on the back of the neck, and quickly hook it over the neck when you need to do the bend (and then move it back to behind the neck right after)? Or do you just keep your thumb hooked over the neck for the entire song?

Yeah - do what feels right and comfortable... and just hope you enjoy mediocrity!

If you want control over the bend, yes.. hooking your thumb over the neck is essential to get the correct wrist motion which allows you to control and phrase the bend properly.
