Hi i have been playing guitar for about a year and i hold my pick like this
Is this right or acceptable? Not sure why my picking hand got tiled like it is. And what is a better way to hold it? I have heard of a George Benson technique but i don't know how to do it or what it looks like

i say both. you always have the option to not use the pedal at all but it will still be there like that obsessed chick you took to homecoming and never called again, sitting there waiting for your call. so yea both

you'd probly be better off using just one finger, if i'm right and you're holding it with your middle finger on the flat side opposite your thumb.

Doesn't matter at all.
Unless it starts to become uncomfortable or hinder your playing, it doesn't matter.

Welcome to the "mysterious journey of the world of guitar"!

It's true, a standardized technique for using a plectrum has not evolved. It's every man (or woman) for himself (or herself).
