How can i learn to play guitar with big fingers?

It seems everytime i try to play guitar my fingers touch other strings. No matter what i try i keep getting the same result. I got big fingers so i think that is one of my problems. Can anyone out there give me a suggestion in how to solve this annoying problem.

    People with skinny fingers have the same problem when they’re starting out. There are some really big guys with really big fingers who play great guitar. There was a band called “Mountain” whose lead guitarist was a great big guy named Leslie West, and he was awesome on the guitar.

    First get a Nylon string classical guitar because they have a wide neck, the same wide neck I used 40 years ago when I learned my fat fingers to play, I still play to this day and everyday.

    you can play guitar if you want to, I saw a video of a street performer playing a guitar with his FEET. What it will take is practise, practise , practise and you will find that fat fingers is not a problem at all. I have huge hands and I even bought a 12 string guitar and strung it as a six string because the strings would then be further apart allowing me room to get my monster digits on the right string. I have since bought an electric guitar where the strings and frets are all very much closer together, and I had little to no trouble switching. Believe me If I can do it YOU can too.
