therein lies two main schools of thought with holding a pick
thumb over index perpendicular.
thumb and index finger are parallel.
i have opted for parallel.
i think parallel is superior
because it is congruent to the structure of the bone.
i also think it has tradeoffs.
perpendicular may be better for alternate picking,
parallel may be better for economy picking.
