From the studio of guitar teacher, Dan Thorpe...

Dear beginner or frustrated guitarist,

If you want to know exactly what to practise each day, build your confidence using proven methods...

...And play songs that will stun your loved ones faster than a rapid-fire Jimi Hendrix guitar solo, read on...

I want to share eight unique guitar lessons with you that will make this happen...

And I want to tell you why it'll work for you.

...Especially if you're learning later on in life or if you've been struggling with the guitar for years.

This is how it began...

Dan Thorpe is a certified guitar teacher. He has over 11 years of experience teaching beginner 40+-year-olds from day 1.

Dan believes in easy-going and simple lessons you can do at your own pace while teaching you to play the songs you love.

He's also a member of the Registry of Guitar Tutors.

In 2021, I wrote two best-selling Amazon books with 629 reviews to date...

...And what happened next shocked me.

After struggling to learn guitar for years due to his arthritis, Lee grabbed a copy of my book.

He wanted to play guitar for himself, not to be a "rock star".  

After enjoying one of my books, Lee emailed me, asking for lessons.

Then this retired firefighter stepped into my teaching studio and dropped this bombshell. He said:

"I've been struggling on guitar for 40 years.

I can't even play a song."

...And then he quietly told me:

"My wife laughed when I tried playing her favorite song"

Lee slumped in his chair as he told me how...

Night after night he would practise in near silence... 

His stomach churned when he watched his best friend jam so confidently.

And he told me how he had spent almost $8k on private lessons, BUT still couldn't play a single song.

It was obvious to me Lee was playing with far too much pressure and tension.

His fingers were sore all the time.

And you may know this feeling.

But the truth is...

There is ONE critical issue that 99% Of beginners suffer from 

This is probably slowing down your progress too.

...But thankfully Lee made a simple change to his practice routine.

...And this one strange solution gave Lee...

More progress in 7 days than in the previous 7 years!

To help him rapidly, I tried something new. 

It was a routine inspired by a simple gym workout that helped me lose weight...

This was a simple 4-minute guitar workout.

It contained the secrets I'd discovered from legends such as Mark Knopfler, Paul Simon, and Eric Clapton.

The routine was based on easy one-finger chords...

Instantly recognisable riffs...

And a simple dexterity-building exercise.

I showed Lee the exact routine and told him:

"Don't think. Just do exactly what I do and I guarantee you will get results."

In just moments, Lee was more relaxed.

The fire was glistening in his eyes.

...And now he knew exactly what to practise each day.

When he came back for his next lesson one week later, I was stunned. 

His eyes gleamed as he told me how over the past week he bit the bullet...

...And he played his wife's favourite song to her once again.

The song was Eric Clapton's "Wonderful Tonight".

He said his heart raced at first...

...But this time when he stopped playing for her... his wife was stunned.

Lee's beautiful rendition made her eyes tear up.

This song had been their wedding song decades earlier and Lee said...

This one thing helped them reconnect.

Now fast forward to today...

Lee feels he has regained his self-worth and confidence and told me: 

"It's like I've turned the clock back 40 years."

He looks forward to practising, his arthritis is no longer an issue, and he feels his brain health is improving by the day...

...And lately, he has even impressed total strangers at his local open mic night.

Now when he jams with his friend, he's the one who is jealous of Lee! 

Now, I'll show you...

The "8 Essential Elements" of guitar playing so you too can get these game-changing results...

You might find yourself saying…

“I'm hopeless. I've lost my motivation. I have no proper practice plan...

...And I feel like I am worse than I was a month ago, but I have no idea why!”

Well, I’ve discovered that for 95% of guitarists, it's the "Random Practice Effect" that is the real cause of slow progress.

That means it's NOT a lack of ability and it’s NOT your fault.

The truth is most real-life and YouTube teachers struggle to show beginner students exactly what to practise.

That's why I've spent the last 2 years formulating the "8 Essential Elements."

Best of all, this routine works if you've tried playing for years...

...And if you're brand new to the guitar.

Improve faster with the

simple tips that made

legends such as

Clapton and Hendrix so good

This system is now trusted by over 23,434 adult guitarists to play stunning music...

...And rid them of feeling lost on the guitar for good.

Think of the "8 Essential Elements" as a clear roadmap to help you confidently play beautiful music at the drop of a hat in the next few weeks...

And for those "confused" and "overwhelmed" feelings to be a distant memory.

Now I'll show you how...

If you can tune up your guitar...

You too can get rapid results with...

The Breakthrough Beginner Guitar Course

In case you are wondering...

There is NO catch!

Just a simple one-time payment

This is NOT a sneaky trial or anything like that.

...BUT then they secretly stick you into a program that charges your card every month.

This is NOT one of them.

There's NO hidden "continuity program" or anything like that.

It's a simple one-off payment.

Your Questions Answered?

Can I really pay what I like for this?

Yes. You can pay anything from $1 upwards for this course.

There is a whole lot of value in the core version of the course, but if you want the extras, you can get them by paying a little more.

Is there a monthly fee?

No. If you get this deal right now, this is a one-time fee where you can pay what you like to get lifetime access to the course and bonuses.

How safe is your site when putting my card details in?

It is as secure as humanly possible. We use the latest high-tech protection and have daily website scans to make sure we are 100% secure.

I'm a brand-new beginner. Will it work for me?

Yes, this simple course is like you walking into my studio for the first time, and me showing you EXACTLY what to do from day 1.

Inside, you will discover how to start with confidence, build good technique, avoid bad habits, get the right gear, and play your first piece of stunning music right away.

Is this for electric or acoustic guitarists?

This is suitable for both acoustic and electric guitarists. I teach the course using an electro-acoustic but you can use any guitar you like.

Do I need to be able to read TAB?

No, every note is taught in step-by-step video. You can slow down and watch each video as many times as you like.

I do teach how to read TAB in a simple and confidence-building way though, should you wish to learn.

How long will it take to complete the course?

The course is designed for you to use at a pace that suits you.

But if you are super keen, you can complete it and see big results in your playing, in as little as two weeks. 

Most students prefer to go at a steady pace and see a long-term transformation. The thing is, if you use the course for even just a few minutes per day, it will change your guitar playing for good.

I have small arthritic hands and struggle with chords. Will it help?

The course will show you exactly where you have been going wrong with your chords and all your technique.

You'll learn how to play one-finger chords and real music, which doesn't even use chords.

But you'll build solid foundations to play any chord using techniques such as "Minimum Pressure Required" and more.

All in a laid-back and easy-to-follow way.

How do I access the course? Is something posted to my house?

This is an online course, but you can download or stream it, at any time.

Simply enter your credit card information on the next page. After that, you’ll get instant access to the course so you can begin right now.

You will pay only once, and there are no additional charges or anything like that.

How long do I get access to it for?

You have LIFETIME access to the course and bonuses. Your membership never expires and you can log in at any time to access it.

I’ve bought lots of books and courses, but never seem to finish them, how is this different?

Most courses are too long and complex for struggling beginners.

This course is a clear and concise course that will give you fast results. It follows time-tested, proven principles with the "8 key lessons".

Better still, if you struggle with small hands or arthritis, you'll discover simple methods to help give you a game-changing transformation right away.

If I don't like it, can I get my money back?

It's a fair question. I really want to over-deliver with this course and give you a massive transformation. Hence why you get this for a low price.

But, if it's not for you for any reason, simply email my team, and we will give you a 100% refund instantly.

There will be no questions asked, no fine print, and no B.S.
