Thumb Placement

That Carol Kaye video is turning into the most useful video I have ever viewed. Recently I was recalled what she said about fret hand thumb position. This gist of it is to plant your thumb behind the neck and instead of shifting your whole hand up and down the neck, you just move your thumb a little bit, and it's less stress on your body.

Upon trying this out I learned this technique is useless for noodling. I'm sure this would more great if you had a song which was playable within five frets, but when you don't know what you'll be playing it's just a useless piece of knowledge. [So I just bit off more then I can chew, again.]
