Fig 1 and 3 shows what kind of angle I usually have my pick at. Would it be beneficial to change it so it's more like Fig 2 and 4?

You should be able to change the pick angle depending on which way you're strumming or picking

Well I play a lot of metal, and it wouldn't be practical to change from an angle like Fig 1 to the opposite every pick stroke, for example death metal style single string picking.

I noticed when I was playing more like Fig 2 and 4 yesterday that I was able to straighten out all 3 of my other fingers which I couldn't do before, and it's easier to make a loose fist like Paul Gilbert, weird.
