To line up the takedown marks for disassembly...

I wrap my pointer finger around the rear sight, and my thumb around the tang/backstrap area and use that to hold the slide back. Having the hammer at half cock makes this easier, as the slide will hit the hammer when it is at half cock at the same point as the takedown marks.

And the left thumb and slingshot method for releasing the slide is a good alternative if you have issues using the slide release.
