  9. You could go with a 3/4 guitar, which is smaller and would put your hands closer together. Pressing down on the strings is mostly a matter of conditioning and practice. I had trouble with that and I'm a full grown man. You could take your guitar in and have them adjust your "action" which would put the strings closer to the fret board. They could be too far away. I still have trouble with the C chord but am getting better with practice. Remember that it's 1% talent and 99% practice.

  10. I try to play guitar but I have very small hands and have a hard time reaching the chords =( I also have a hard time holding down the strings. Do you have any hints? Maybe an electric guitar? (would the chords and strumming be the same on electric?) A small child's guitar?
