SDK off of shoulder rotation works fine for me. If you need more accuracy you could set up something more complicated. I remember reading in one of my Girlfriends medical anatomy books that the scapula rotates 1 degree for every 2 degrees of shoulder rotation abouve a 45 degree angle. Or something like that. I can't remember exactly. I just set it up so that it looks right.

Yeah and parent it under the collar bone. The connection of the clavical and scapula creates the socket that the humerous head rests in. These three bones together creates the shoulder joint. The entire shoulder setup is attached to your skeleton at the base of the clavicle basically on top of the sternum. So the clavicle is the root.
