when strumming my pick kinda moves down and up the strings in its natural arc, am I supposed to be compensating for this arc to keep the pick angle constant to the string?

ie. when strumming down, by the time my pick gets to the high E its been turned a little cause of my arm movement.
when I strum down my arm doesnt go down in a straight line, it arcs, so does my pick
It is totally fine, even normal.

Don't sweat it man, just enjoy it as you go along.
Do NOT look behind you.
what size is your pick?
maybe you should use a harder pick.

as long as you're used to it and its not affecting the sound then its okay
I see you're not using the UG black theme
