I don’t think it’s very common for someone to just pick up a guitar and be good at it immediately. It involves hundreds and thousands of hours to get good. The natural talent for music has more to do with your ear and listening. The physical act of playing the instrument takes lots of practice

It doesn't take that long to get the muscle memory for chords.  It does take a bit to move fluidly between them, but get the basic open chords down and you can at least play along with songs.  Doing that makes it much more enjoyable that just practicing solo, and doing so will get those chord changes down faster.  Then you hit the point where you can play rhythm to most songs fairly easily, and can then diverge into learning more complex chords and rhythms, or learn some lead stuff, or a mix of both.  That's when it REALLY becomes fun (you're addicted).
