Also, I can never think of wrapping my thumb around back neck. However, something I'll try is to use a guitar with a less wide neck, trying it on a 1.75 now. Just fun things to work on.
Are you holding the guitar in the classical position?

Yes holding guitar in classical position. I also find I'm not holding the A note on 1st string most of the time. I'll get it, just time and practice and paying attention.

I'm also trying the Entertainer. Don't really have problem with that, weird. All out different body parts work differently, different limitations.

I suppose we all have our Achille's heel pieces. I started working on Asturias and there's a stretch I can't really get which is stopping the whole thing, but I work on it once in a while. It's not really a piece that is within my skills anyway so I'm not broken hearted about it

That bend about 3:20 blew my mind when he bent the whole neck to get the bend.
