I've seen some books and internet pages showing G major with fingers 1,2 and 3 and others that say to use 2,3 and 4.

Is there a right and a wrong way to play this?

Cheers

play whichever is most comfortable to you.

i personally play with index, middle and ring fingers. some people use all four fingers and whack an extra g note on the top e string.

thats the beauty of guitar. there arent very many right or wrong answers. just do whats best for you.

Nah, won't say it can be done 'wrong' as long as it sounds right.
I use 1, 2, and 3 .. i find it natural that way.
If you wanna be all fancy you can do like this

Just with your first finger! Sounds almost the same as with all 3 fingers

i use my index, middle and ring finger, cos i find it more comfortable that way

but you dont have too

i also play it:

e|----3----|
B|---------|
G|---------|
D|---------|
A|----2----|
E|----3----|

but once again you dont have too and can play it the other way

I usually play with 1, 2 and 3, but depending on what I'm playing I might just do this:

e|----3----|
B|---------|
G|---------|
D|---------|
A|---------|
E|----3----|

Just the 2 notes. I've been told the "proper" way is 2, 3, and 4, but it really doesn't matter, they are the same notes after all.

If you can, use your middle finger,ring finger, and pinky. I know I can't even do a g shape using those fingers because my fingers dont have enough what would be the word...Dexterity I guess.

Using 2,3 and 4 with making switching a lot easier but if you can't then your first 3 fingers are fine.
