I wanted to introduce myself

Good morning, my name is Richard Murphy and I'm from Augusta Georgia and I'm writing this morning just to introduce myself and to let everyone know that I am a super new beginner to the guitar. I've been a huge music fan from the time I heard my first 45 my folks would play ..... A bit of everything is my taste.
Allot of my friends played and I never had the stick to it ness to work for something that I've always wanted to do, but at the tender age of 43 I know i am ready. I also know from the simple picking exercises that its not going to be a piece of cake and that's ok. I'm starting from scratch and there's nothing bad going to happen other than I'm going to learn.
I really just wanted to say good morning and that I'm glad I landed in a great place to learn.
I hope everyone has a great day.
Thanks again!

Richard, it's been almost a year so perhaps you are not still involved but if you are, can you (or anyone else reading this) tell me if you experienced a feeling that your left/fret hand was abnormally contorted to finger even the most basic chords? I've been playing (off and on) for about 3 weeks, not much, and feel like my hand just isn't made to stretch even half a fret length between the second and third fingers. I have never found articles or blog posts on it so it looks like I'm the only one.... Is this just abnormal? I don't expect to play without much more significant time practicing, I know that; I'm just afraid my 50 year old hand is just not going to be able to do this no matter how long I go at it. Love to hear what you have to say. Thanks.
