Well, there’s no point in beating around the bush...

Quite simply, I want you to stop being the person who admires other guitarists and instead...

Be the Guitarist
That Other People Admire...

And Enjoy the wonderful health benefits of being a musician

Many people know about the social and mental benefits of playing the guitar, but did you know that being a musician can reduce the chances of getting dementia by 1/3?*

Well, the benefits are countless, but I know you’re here right now because of one of two reasons:

  • Reason #1You want to learn guitar for fun and play the songs you love while unwinding.

    Joining a band is probably not for you, but you've dreamt of playing guitar for years, yet life may have got in the way.

    Now it may be that your kids have "fled the nest" and you have more time, but you so far you feel lost by where to begin with the guitar or worried about what others will think of you if you don't succeed... 
  • Reason #2 - You've put your heart into trying to learn guitar... And you may own multiple guitars but some days the only reason to pick them up is to "dust them off".

    If you had lessons you may have found your tutor had no real teaching plan, the lessons were overly complex, or no matter how much you try you just can’t seem to get the hang of it.

    This may have caused you to feel talentless or frustrated or like you've hit a brick wall... And this feeling churns your stomach like a ticking time bomb.

At least 95% of the students I teach have experienced either of the above. Well, I'm here to tell you the good news is... with a little focus and some small tweaks to your playing, we can take what you already know and turn it into beautiful music. 

And in a moment, I'll show you the "secret" method as to how.

Listen, You Are Absolutely Not Alone

I Know How TOUGH Learning Guitar Can Be...

And that’s why it’s fate you’re here today...

My name’s Dan Thorpe... And I’m the founder of the '10x Method', the Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy, and the author of two best-selling books.

I've taught 10,000+ hours of private lessons and am a qualified RGT instructor, but more importantly, I get real results for my students from day 1.

I know what it takes to learn 

guitar when you feel

you have no "natural talent"

I struggled on the guitar for a few years. I couldn't read TAB and I was the guy who tried to play a C Major chord upside down at first!

Now it's my personal mission to help students like you break the shackles of trying to learn guitar in the same old way everybody else tries.

My 1st ever Registry of Guitar Tutors certificate!

My lessons, free blog posts, and social media videos have helped countless guitarists over the last 10 years...

And Have Changed


...But I know how disheartening it can be when other people make playing guitar look easy. If you feel this way:

Turns Out, You aren’t The Only One...

Recently I was trying to figure out the COMMON DENOMINATOR among the most successful guitarists I've taught.

I asked myself this one question:

“What’s the difference between guitarists who succeed

Versus those who fail...?”

Recently I was searching for a clear answer to this question...

Then a student told me a story about the great Eric Clapton that helped me answer this question once and for all.

As a young man, living on post-WWII rations, Eric Clapton watched Buddy Holly playing live on a flickering TV set one fateful evening.

His mouth hit the floor as a new world opened up to him...

Right then, in that raw, electrifying moment, Eric made a decision - he was going to be a guitarist.

...But little did he grasp the relentless challenge that lay ahead, the steep climb up the treacherous mountain of guitar mastery.

Guitarist on TV Side_4

After many hours of practice, his frustration boiled up.

Years later, Eric admitted that back then:

"I Couldn't Even Tune a Guitar, Let Alone Play One!" - Eric Clapton

...But slowly, Eric started to put the pieces of the jigsaw together. 

And with butterflies in his belly, he took a beautiful girl to a coffee shop to show her his guitar skills, yet...

Fear grabbed him by the throat, the colour drained from his face, and he froze. 

Not a solitary note escaped his trembling grasp.

...And the audience's laughter became a tormenting echo that followed him on his solitary walk home, his shoulders slumped beneath the weight of defeat.

It might seem hard to believe but...

Dan Railway Station

Even the "world's greatest guitarist" Was once HUMILIATED!

Eric had thoughts about quitting.

...But of course, he didn't quit.

Instead, he forged a pact with himself to master the art of the guitar through the only means that truly promised success.

Over time, nurtured by the wisdom of a sage mentor, he knuckled down, practiced with focus.

...And applied the surprising principles of learning guitar that were key to his success.

Then he found the confidence to once again stand before an audience.

Taking centre stage in one of London's hallowed venues, Eric inhaled deeply, palms slick with sweat, and he started to play. 

At First, You Could Hear Pin Drop...

...Then jaws were dropping As tHEY HEARD HIM Playing With A Wild and frenzied passion

Night after night, Clapton unleashed his musical power upon enthralled audiences.

The transformation from a novice to a guitar legend was nothing short of breathtaking.

In the blink of an eye, Clapton quickly became a household name and one of the most loved guitarists ever.

Eric Clapton's story goes to show EVERYONE struggles with the guitar at first.

In a moment, I'll show you the key lesson discovered from his journey, but now if you find yourself saying…

“My songs don't sound like actual songs and

it feels like my playing is going backwards

...But I have no idea why!”

Well, I’ve discovered that something called "Random Overload Practice" is the real cause of slow and frustrating progress - especially for adult learners.

This means it isn't the amount of practice you are doing that is the problem...

In fact, it is the sheer randomness of most guitar tuition on YouTube and with private tutors that is causing confusion.

That's why I've spent the last 3 years formulating the '10 X method'...

10x Your musicality, motivation, and Your progress

The '10x Method' is now trusted by thousands of adult guitarists around the world to play stunning songs with confidence.

...And the long, lonely nights wondering if you are cut out to play guitar can be a distant memory.

Think of the '10x Method' as taking off a blindfold and putting together the pieces of the guitar-playing jigsaw together for the first time.

...So you can transform your technique, turbocharge your motivation, and improve your musicality.

Best of all, I'll show you a clear and easy-to-follow plan to make this happen.

The '10x Method' is easy to use and can be applied to your playing immediately.

This means with a few simple tweaks to what you've already been doing, you can gain...

In fact, this is exactly what happened to Robert who emailed me to say this the other day to say this:

Thanks Dan. Been practicing daily for six years. If I had only had this in the very beginning, I’d be much further along but now I can say I finally feel like a real guitar player.  All the time is paying off. Thanks again.

— Robert

"A "One-Stop" Solution to becoming a Confident musician?

Learning guitar on your own can be confusing.

That’s why I've put together ALL of the '10x Method' tools for you...

So you can get a "done for you" system while removing all of the guesswork.

Plus, because I want you fall in love with the guitar, I’m not going to make you pay the high price tag that normally comes with learning guitar.

As I said earlier, I’m going to GIVE YOU everything, including over $1,598 worth of guitar secrets... to get a fresh start to your playing today... for FREE!

...All I ask is that you cover the printing, shipping, and handling costs so we can send you all of the physical goodies (plus extra surprises... shhhh it’s a secret)... sound fair?

Cool, now, with that being said...

Here's Everything you get So you can 

Transform your playing

The 'No Chord Fingerstyle' Course

HD Video course and Digital Download (with tAB + Notation)

FREE GIFT #1 _v1

Do you ever feel desperate to play REAL songs quickly and finally have some fun on the guitar? 

The No Chord Fingerstyle course features my new system for playing famous, BEAUTIFUL, and timeless FAMOUS songs that will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.... In just minutes.

...AND without needing any chords to play them.

You'll find out how to play a variety of timeless and classic songs such as "Amazing Grace".

Watch the HD videos, use the optional TAB + notation, and enjoy this simple course which will be a game-changer for you if you've struggled to play songs so far.

How does it work?

The No Chord Fingerstyle method works by using a little-known secret about 'open keys' and is highly influenced by classical maestro Ferdinando Carulli, but modernised for the more casual modern guitarist. Inside you will discover:  

  • The secret to playing instantly recognisable songs using the 'NCF' system - this simple method will make any song easy to play while keeping the music full of elegance.
  • NO tricky stretches, NO awkward chord changes, and NO more songs that take months to play. Instead, within minutes, you can be playing songs you and others love and recognise.
  • ...Plus, discover tricks on 'spicing' your songs up using simple techniques such as vibrato, "fills", and smooth 'legato' techniques. 

"Brother Dan! I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart, because your course finally was what I needed! I picked the song, “Amazing Grace”, because I was an alcoholic when I was younger. Today, I stood up, not looking at the sheet music, and played a song! I finally got it! I played it for my wife. I have never done that before!  - Matt Nevins


Guitarists Get Theory 

Physical Copy


Music theory is the glue that connects all the pieces of music together.

Guitarists Get Theory v1

Inside this highly sought after book, you'll discover the keys to understanding AND using music theory... FROM SCRATCH and with confidence.

The book ties together all the elements of the Academy and all the random pieces of your music knowledge you've learnt elsewhere... all in a clear and easy to read way.

...And as it is written specifically for guitarists, you can be 100% confident it will work for you.

Here are just a few happy owners of the

Guitarists Get Theory book 

Inside, you'll discover:

  • A light-hearted, practical, and complete A to Z guide to theory helping you fully understand it like a seasoned musician... but without the trial and error of trying to piece it all together yourself.
  • How to "unlock" the fretboard with clarity and conference using three simple formulas in just minutes.
  • Why chord progressions are one of the secrets that me and my students use to remember how to play hundreds of songs with ease.
  • Discover how chords are built, the beauty and the beast of 'consonance' and 'dissonance', fun fretboard tips and tricks, and the secret power of 'Octaves'...
  • ...Plus, to help you remember it all... there are mini 'quizzes', easy-to-read visual diagrams, a summary of everything you'll learn, and much more.

In short, this book will help you play new songs faster, use theory like a pro, and improve your ability to jam any time and with more confidence.

WARNING: Why you might want to avoid this:

Now here's some truth that most people won't tell you...

I'm super proud of the Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy and the game-changing results it gets for students, but I won't sugarcoat it. This is not for you if:

  • You're already advanced guitarist (this is for beginners and intermediate guitarists)
  • You are 'stuck in your ways' and not willing to try out a new method 
  • You are only interested in jazz, heavy metal, or complex theory or "modes"
  • You want to be a "star" and make it in the music industry, or you expect to play like Hendrix or Clapton overnight
  • You are not willing to commit time to improving your guitar skills... This requires consistent steady effort (15-30 minutes per day is enough).

Saying all that, don't forget, I specialise in teaching fingerstyle, folk, pop, blues, and Travis picking...

...So if that is your thing, then it's a no-brainer to join today.

Here’s Exactly What Will Happen Next

When you say "maybe" today, your free gifts will posted out to you,  and you will instantly receive your login details so you can access the Academy and the bonuses right away.

Firstly though, you will get the "Welcome" video with instructions on how best to use the Academy so you can begin with rock solid clarity and confidence.

You'll also be given a priority email address where you get priority VIP support from me anytime, should you need it.

  • New "Transformation" Tip - Improve a specific problem area with a laser-focused tutorial using the exact lessons helping my private students the most.
  • New Two-Minute Challenge - Have fun with a new highly motivating mini challenge (along with tips). These are perfect if you're short on time or you want to test and track your progress (which we should all do).

Now, if you’re still here, then you’re probably wondering...

OK Dan, What’s The Catch?”

Listen— I’m not hiding anything. I’m making this insane offer as a bribe to get you to sign up for a 14-day free trial of the Academy.

Why would I do this?

For a few reasons, actually...

Reason #1 — I know that when you try out the Academy, I can almost guarantee you will see huge progress in a matter of days... I know you’ll FALL IN LOVE with the Academy and love the guitar. Imagine relaxing in your garden on a hot day, and taking a sip of a cool drink while the birds are chirping. You play guitar without a care in the world. Other people love the elegant sounds of your playing and you finally feel like a "real" musician. This is all going to happen for you now.

Reason #2—I know that once you start using the Academy, you may even want to share your joy of music with others. It's my mission to build a bridge so everyone can play guitar....So if anyone you inspire also tries out the Academy, it means I get to share these lessons with more people and help change and improve more lives.

Reason #3— Because music gives us purpose. Society is not always kind to older adults learning new skills. My gran died in her 60s when I was little. Sadly, she didn't have much purpose in life after my grandfather passed away. If she'd had a purpose like playing music, her life would have been different...

For years most of my students have ranged in age from early 40s to late 80s and many had little confidence when they began, yet I know from first-hand experience with the right lessons you TOO can enjoy the massive health and social benefits of being a guitarist.

Reason #4— I’m sick and tired of people selling "hacks" and shortcuts on the guitar. The truth is, if you are NOT willing to put in the time required, this will not work. And to battle back again those “flash-in-the-pan” gurus who charge you a SMALL FORTUNE... and then bail on you, leaving you out to dry, I want to OVER DELIVER and not charge you to join the Academy today.

Your course changed everything for me! I want to learn for my enjoyment and be confident enough to play for my kids and grandkids...  For me, you are the perfect instructor and this month has been my best month of learning – I have learned 4 songs – my first actual songs, so I am really stoked!!!"

I could write ten paragraphs on everything that is so wonderful about your program and how much you are teaching me. I am at the point now that I can take these ideas and incorporate them into my playing. I never thought I would be able to play. You are a huge part of my success so thank you!"

That is too cool for words, New stuff is exciting even to an oldee! Great for our special weekend at the lake house with the family! The kids will love it and so will I!

I was being taught to read music but it was not fun at all. With Dan I have made more progress in one year than I had in the six years of my previous lessons. I am having more fun and have more passion for the guitar than I ever had before. At last, I feel like this is something I really can do!

When l joined I was 88. l have arthritis, but l have reached a standard beyond my expectations. l recommend you give Dan serious consideration. Thank you Dan for helping me to love my guitar and the enjoyment l get playing it.

Absolutely loving this, someone heard me practising and said how good it sounded! I never imagined I would even attempt it. Joining the DTAA is the best thing I have done to learn guitar. I can’t believe how much progress I have made in such a short time.

I want you to smile as you play guitar, be happy, and enjoy your life. The guitar can be a wonderful addition to your life... 

This is a VERY limited-time offer.

As I said earlier, I’m only accepting a small handful of highly motivated folk who are ready to transform their playing.

But also...

1.) I have less than 100 physical copies of the book, and other goodies. I can order more, but there’s a massive lag time right now, including LONG shipping & printing wait times.

So if you don’t sign up today, and we sell out of our books and goodies, (which can happen any time) then you may have to wait up to 6 months OR LONGER to receive physical copies of my book and freebies...

2.) Your chance to secure this incredible FREE GIFT... including a 14-day FREE trial with step-by-step coaching and support from me that normally costs THOUSANDS of dollars... will be disappearing soon.

This goes without saying, as a father of a young son and a busy life, I simply won't have the time to help more students in the future if the membership grows to be too big.

That means once I hit my “cap” of people signing up today, then we’ll be erasing this offer from the Internet, for the foreseeable future...

So if you're here right now, and you want a STEP-BY-STEP system on how to become the guitarist you dream of being...

...And start playing stunning music practically overnight...

Then NOW is the time to sign up and secure your free gift before it’s too late!

My Rock-Solid Two-Part Guarantee

30-Day Money Back Guarantee

Guarantee #1:

30 Day Money-Back Guarantee

I 1,000% know you will love your incredible free gift, or I will return your shipping fees... and you can KEEP the gifts anyway.

That includes the Guitarists Get Theory book, online courses, coaching, and hand delivered goodies. That’s right. You don’t have to send anything back.

Just email the address on your receipt and we’ll return your investment with zero hassle and no hard feelings. I know the likelihood of that happening is very VERY low.

But I still want to make myself crystal clear: there is NO risk to you.

So if you feel the value is just not as promised on this page, then I’ll personally return your initial investment and we’ll STILL part as friends...;)


Guarantee #2:

VIP Support

We guarantee you will get our full VIP support from day 1.

Me and my assistant will hold your hand and make sure you never get lost or stuck using the Academy.

I want you to know I'm not just some faceless guitar tutor who is here today and will be gone tomorrow. I've been teaching full time for 10-years+, I have built up a loyal community, and have more passion for teaching than ever.

...So if you ever have any questions, I guarantee you'll receive a response within a 24-hour period (usually it is less than 12 hours time zone pending).

Just Say “MAYBE”,

And This Gift Is Yours…For FREE!

That’s the beauty of this gift! You don’t even need to make a commitment and say “YES!” right now…

All you have to do is say “MAYBE”.

“Maybe I’ll give it a try…”

“Maybe I can do it!”

“Maybe I’m ready to try a different way of playing guitar and changing my habits and even my life…”

“Maybe the '10x Method' and the Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy are the answer I’ve been waiting for…”

Are you ready to say MAYBE, and receive your incredible GIFT?

Really, there are two choices:

- Choice #1: Put the Random Pieces of the Jigsaw Together Yourself ...But that means spending weeks and even months trying to put together a plan of all the random fragments of guitar lessons out there... And who knows, you might get lucky and not waste more time and money than you already have. But there's a smarter choice...

- Choice #2: Let Me Put the Jigsaw Together for You! Instead, why not try out the exact blueprint to guitar-playing success today? This is the quickest, easiest, and smartest way to learn guitar. These are the exact same lessons that have given 1000s of students huge success on the guitar.   

With That Said,

This Gift Is Yours…For FREE!

It’s time for you to “get in the game” and start transforming your guitar playing.

The guitar can give you more health and happiness in life and more self-belief in everything you do.

I PROMISE You This...

Once you play your first song and discover these lessons, you’re going to feel like a rockstar.

I know how silly that may sound, but honestly, there’s just nothing like it...

I want you to experience what it’s like to be a confident, happy, and self-assured guitarist every time you pick up your guitar, and it all starts when YOU start. 

So if you're ready to embark on an exciting journey that can bring more health, happiness, and joy to your life, let's begin. See you in the Academy.

To your success,

Dan Thorpe

Greg Michaels

Greg Bates I am probably just another in a long line of students that want to say thank you. Since joining I can now say that I'm improving because you have somehow put it all together for me. I now see that there is daylight at the end of this long dark tunnel of doubt I have been down. It is finally happening.


 Jack Edmunds Sr

Jack Edmunds Sr. What I really like about the academy is it is a structured course. You have specific lessons to work on for the month.

Ian Avery

Ian Whitaker I am very impressed with your teaching style. You explain everything really clearly and do not lose me on the way. It is note-for-note tuition and this is EXACTLY what I need. You have obviously taught many students over the years and it comes over.


Mike Copeland

Mike Carlson I’ve tried private lessons and online courses as well as You Tube instruction, etc., you know the drill! I wanted a “one stop shop” experience so as not to jump around to different instructors. The DTAA is the right fit for me at this point in my journey. I look forward to being a member of this academy as well as hearing about the successes and challenges of the other members.

Joe Kepnes

Joe Kepnes I am almost 70 and have taken to catching up on my teenage novice playing days. Now, after almost 6 months, the clarity and simplicity of Dan’s methods continue to make me want to go on and on…


Gilson Manuel

Gilson Manuel My name is Gilson, from Melbourne. I’m in my 60’s and want to spend rest of my life reviving my lost passion. I have been playing on and off without much direction. I love fingerpicking. Just finished my day 1. Really shocking to realise how much of these simple things I ignored for so many years. Today’s lesson is simple but never knew these small tricks!! Look forward to be a Rock star soon:)!

Dennis Sullivan

Dennis Roberts My name is Dennis and I am in my second month with DTAA. I am 75 years old and have been on the stop/start guitar merry go round for most of those 75 years. For the first time ever I look forward to playing each day.

Jim Powers

Jim Knoll Jim here. Retired old geezer living in St. Augustine, FL. Love Dan’s approach and teaching style. Just finishing up my first month in DTAA. Have commented a few times and your support is fantastic. I’m seeing progress and loving the DTAA – thanks!


Roxanne Hobbs

Nicholas Stern I was always told I am tone deaf. I don’t think that is necessarily true about anyone. With practice it is amazing what you can achieve. This is the best subscription I have and I highly recommend people commit to at least a month and see the difference and progress they can make.


As soon as you say "Yes!" you'll begin this exciting journey right away

Frequently Asked Questions

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

A: This is unlike anything out there. It is not just some random 'course'. Instead, this is a fully fledged "one-stop" solution to learning guitar that you can use at your own pace. You get the best of both worlds...

...Easy to follow organised lessons at your fingertips... AND the support of a real teacher and community, but at a fraction of the cost of private tuition.

If you're an adult guitarist who loves fingerpicking, strumming, rock, pop, and blues, you will absolutely love the lessons on show.

Q: How Does The Free Trial Work?

A: Let us work with you step by step to help transform your guitar-playing life without the headaches. No gimmicks. No funny business. At the end of your 14-day free trial, once you agree the Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy is the key to playing guitar with true freedom, then you don’t have to do a thing, and we’ll automatically enrol you into our monthly Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy subscription for just $47/mo. Cancel anytime without any hassle.

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

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

Q. When will I receive my free gift?

A: When you sign up today for the 14-day free trial of the Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy, you’ll receive instant access to all of the free digital downloads on the order confirmation page. For the physical goods, including the Guitarists Get Theory book, exclusive "Big Goal" Cheat Sheet, guitar picks, etc., then please allow 2 to 4 weeks for them to arrive.

Q. Is All Of This Value Really FREE?! What's the catch?

A: Yes, it's true! There’s no catch. When you say "maybe" today, you can secure up to $1,598 of ‘guitar playing secrets,’ including step-by-step guidance to help you learn stunning songs, know exactly what to practice, and transform your playing today.

All we ask is that you cover the one-time small payment of just $19.95 for printing, shipping, & handling. This isn't some collection of lame PDFs you can download... I love receiving packages and I prefer physical books and real practical stuff that I can keep next to my guitar over PDFs ALWAYS.

The initial $19.95 printing & shipping fee will seem insignificant, especially when you realise you won't need to spend any money on countless books or random courses or waste any more precious time searching YouTube for the answers. Everything you need to succeed on the guitar is here in the Academy. 

Q. Do I need to be able to read TAB?

A: No, every note is taught in step-by-step HD video, which you can slow down and watch as many times as you like... And each video comes with optional subtitles which are great if you sometimes struggle to hear clearly. All the lessons do come with full TAB and notation. I even teach how to read TAB in a simple and confidence-building way though, should you wish to learn.

Q. I am 65 and have struggled on and off with guitar. I like your teaching, but will this work for me at my age?

A: Age does NOT matter. 65 years young is a good age to learn. You have life experience, a passion for music, and possibly a little more time to enjoy this wonderful instrument now. We have a 92-year-old as a member, and he is loving it. If he can do it, you can too!

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

A: Yes, the '10x Method' and intro lesson will help immediately. Most people are never taught to play with proper technique but I'll show you some easy technical fixes that work even if you have 'tiny hands' or large 'sausage fingers' ...And also, the whole membership is designed to help you play beautiful music without pain, no matter how hard you've found playing the guitar in the past. 

Q. How long do I get access to the lessons for?

A: You have LIFETIME access to all the new monthly lessons that are released while you are a member... And you get to keep all the lessons in the welcome bundle (worth $1,598) forever just for trying out the Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy. 

Q. What If I'm Not Satisfied With My Subscription?

A: This is highly unlikely. However, with that said, if you don't find your Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy subscription useful, including the $1,598 worth of ‘guitar secrets’ given to you for free today... then you can cancel anytime and we'll part as friends. ;)

We'd hate for you to sign up for a Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy account and it just sits there empty. So, if you are part of the small percentage of people who don't find the Academy useful, then you can cancel anytime and we won't hold it against you.

Q. Do You Have A Guarantee?

A:  I don't have a guarantee... we have THREE! That's right. We are guaranteeing your order 3X so you can know for certain this is the RIGHT move to make, today!

We guarantee a 14-day 100% refund, which means you can test drive us for a full 14 days risk-free, and if you don't like us, then you can simply email me and we'll refund your initial investment, and you can keep the free gifts on me. ;)

We guarantee your success! Once you sign up, you'll have complete support from me and my assistant who is there to help answer questions you may have..

We also have a rare 365-day guarantee... which says if you do not experience positive business results using Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy for a full calendar year, then I'll still refund your initial investment.
