    im a having a hard time stretching my fingers far enough across to play some tabs

    (example the chorus jal - addat)

    is it just my fingers..or is stretching across 2 frets hard for other people too?

    It will take time, rest assured. We all go through phases where we think our fingers are going to walk out on us

    Try practicing the major scale in this guitar teacher calls it the stretch scale since it stretches your fingers. This exercise is good for finger stretching as well as fast, speedy runs across the fretboard:
