Correct. Two true vocal chords and two false ones. The question is then are any able to do a D chord?

Great going.
All it takes to perfect something in just a little practice, same case in guitar.
If you want to learn, you just gotta do it. Don't blame your teacher, or anyone else.
Good luck in your learning journey.
(And I hope you aren't serious about the Jimi Hendrix thing )

HAH, chords gona be eaiser when you get your callouses and you will get them if you play long enough. Up to that point, you will want to burn your guitar because it will hurt so bad! Learning on acoustic is rough but I'd say its best for chords and stuff. You will want an electric as you advance so you can learn bends and such

It means now a few more days and people will forget Jimi Hendrix yay!!!!
In a few days, you will be saying "Damn this hurts my fingers", and that is natural until you form callous on the tips. After that, remember that all that hard pushing you did to learn chords is now your enemy. Learn to make the chord with the lightest possible touch you can. Saves your fingers, saves your hands, and it's how it's supposed to be done, with any chord.

As a fellow novice going through this process, don't forget to make sure your guitar is in tune every day. I struggled badly to get a clean sound out of the 5th string the first week and it drove me crazy. Well, the digital tuner that I was using had me off by a full octave!! It was an A, but the string was so loose it buzzed at each strike.

I was playing a whole different animal after correcting that issue.

You too? Happy to know I'm not the only one whose has had that happen to them. It's more bad when you think you are tuning the B string and suddenly Twang! goes the E string.
