Practice the chords one at a time for a few minutes first. Play your C chord touch your leg with your hand,
then play the C chord again. Repeat 5 or 10 times. Do the same with the G chord or any chord you're having
trouble with. This will help your fingers form the chord as your changing chords.

Try this
Play a C chord with your little finger on the top e string fret 3 ... Playing the note g
Keep your little finger exactly there - don't move it when changing to a G chord that you play without your 1st finger
Place 3rd finger on low E string free 3 and middle on fret 2 of the A string

Change back and forward like this to train your 3 finger G chord

Quick question about the fingering.

I notice in the video and in the diagram, the knuckles of his first and second fingers are apart, mine tend to naturally touch.
I'm not thinking it's a huge deal considering when I've tried to keep them apart and when I let them come together there's no difference that I can see but should I be trying to keep 'em separated for reasons I don't see yet?

At this point, nope. Do what ya do, but keep trying to get your fingers close to the frets.

As you move forward, you will find a lot of things changing. One of them will be the stretch between your fingers. They just naturally get further apart.
