If you can get to play all the following open chords without touching the other unnecessary strings and holding the right strings firmly, you are good to go, you will be able to play almost any song on your guitar that you hear today. It might take a while to get it right, but if you keep practicing, your hands will develop the muscles that you require and with time you will be good to go.
Make sure that your fingers are firm against the fret board and that your fingers touch only the strings they are supposed to touch.
Firstly the numbering on the images signify the fingers used to play the notes.
1 is the pointer finger
