All You Have To Do Is Say “MAYBE”

And these gifts are yours...for free

Just Cover $19.95 for printing, shipping, and handling ($39.95 for non-US orders)

Dear guitarist,

If you are an adult fed up with wasting money on misleading lessons that get you nowhere...

...OR you've been spinning your wheels for years strumming "songs that don't sound like actual songs"... or maybe even the dog runs off when you tune up!

...Well either way, if your stomach churns because you feel you lack "talent" or you feel "too old to learn" then...

Today, I'm Going to Give You A Simple 99.99% done for you Plan to show you how to...

fingerpick and strum beautiful music you lOVE

...And learn at your own pace without Feeling overwhelmed


...And I'll tell you about the struggles of one of the most famous guitarists of all time.

I'll also give you the real reasons why legends such as Eric Clapton, James Taylor, and Tommy Emmanuel are so good.

Hint: it's NOT about endless hours of practice. 

...And in a moment, you'll discover a new method to play songs and jam beyond the first few frets.

This method is actually based on a 200-year-old technique, but simplified so you can bring back the excitement of playing real music on the guitar.

Get the Specific tools to Play Beautiful Music purely for yourself

(And the confidence to play In Front of others if you wish)

  • It doesn’t matter if you can't yet play a SINGLE SONG, you struggle with bad habits, the "Death Grip", or even arthritis (I'll give you fast and specific solutions to fix all this).
  • It doesn’t matter if you lack time or motivation... (you'll get a tried and tested plan to make your practice joyful and almost "addictive").
  • It doesn’t matter if you worry you're wasting time (again, we'll quickly help with any mental blocks and show you why you must be kind to yourself).

Plus, you'll see how it doesn't matter if you’re not “technical”.

...Because if you can tie your shoelaces, you can follow these straightforward lessons for 20 minutes or so per day.

And The Good News Is I've found...

It usually Only Takes Some Small Tweaks
To Get You There

Now, You Might Be Wondering...

“Why on earth is Dan Thorpe being so generous... and doing all of this for me today... and for free?!”

Dan Thrope Side_3

Quite simply...

I want you to enjoy the social, mental, and physical benefits of playing guitar. For instance, a recent study showed that you can reduce your chances of getting dementia by 1/3* by playing an instrument.

The truth is...

The guitar can be like therapy and give you more self-confidence, stress relief, and fulfilment than most other things in life.

Many of my students have found since their kids started to "flee the nest" that the guitar gave them a new purpose.

But first, in case you're wondering why I'm qualified to help you, let me tell you how...

My lessons have changed the path of Countless Guitarists Over The Last 11 Years...

If you are new here, my name is Dan Thorpe.

I hate it when people try to sell me guitar lessons full of hype that are frankly usually a waste of time and money. I believe in tried and tested methods.

I've put in the hard yards refining my methods over 1000s of hours and 11+ years of teaching students like you and...

I know what it's like when you feel you don't have enough "natural talent"

I struggled on the guitar at first too. It took me ages to play a C Major chord and I was embarrassed when my family heard me play.

...But since then, I've become a qualified tutor with a huge roster of successful students, performed live 100s of times, created the '10x Method', and authored two best-selling books.

And now it's my mission to help students like you flourish, play beautiful music, develop the ability to express yourself through music, and "unlock" the fretboard from day 1.

In fact, recently on a podcast, I was asked:

My Registry of Guitar Tutors certificate of qualification

“What’s the difference between guitarists who succeed

versus those who fail...?”

Well, here's a little story about Eric Clapton that I shared and which may shock you.

As a young man, Eric Clapton watched Buddy Holly playing live on a flickering TV set one evening.

In that electrifying moment, he decided he was going to be a guitarist.

...But he didn't realise the challenges that lay ahead.

After many hours of late-night practice, Eric's frustration started to boil. 

Years later, he admitted that back then:

Guitarist on TV Side_4

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

Eric even tried to impress a beautiful girl at a coffee shop but fear grabbed him by the throat and... he froze. 

It was so bad the audience's laughter was like a tormenting echo following him on his walk home.

It might seem hard to believe but...

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

You too may have considered quitting the guitar at some point.

...But Eric Clapton stuck with it. He forged a pact with himself to learn the guitar properly. He knuckled down and cut out the 99% of his wasted practice time.

Later, he took centre stage in one of London's hallowed venues and with palms slick with sweat he started to play. 

At First, You Could Hear Pin Drop...

...Then jaws hit the floor as they watched him Play with a wild and frenzied passion

Night after night, Clapton unleashed his musical power upon enthralled audiences who had chills when he played riff after mesmerising riff.

...And quickly he became a household name and one of the most loved guitarists ever.

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

If you stick with it, you will succeed.

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 after studying legends like Clapton, it's something called...

"Variable overload practice" that is the real cause of slow and frustrating progress. 

This means it isn't the amount of practice you are doing that is the problem... It is probably the abyss of random guitar lessons sucking you down that is causing confusion.

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

So you can Transform Your musicality and motivation

The '10x Method' is now trusted by 1000s of members 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 a clear and easy-to-follow system that's like removing a blindfold so...

You can put ALL the pieces of the guitar-playing jigsaw together.

The core principles behind the "10x Method" come from Fernando Sor and his classic book, Method For Guitar which was written in 1830. (Sor was known as the "Beethoven of the guitar".)


Yet I've modernised the '10x Method' and made it simple for anyone to use and perfect for casual folk, pop, blues, and fingerpicking guitarists.

Best of all, you can apply it immediately to give you instant results, just like Teresa who recently posted this in our Facebook group...

Now, I'm going to give you...

A "One-Stop" Solution For Transforming your playing

Get Clarity, A "Success Path", and Rewards

Six String FREE GIFT #1

Do you ever worry if you're actually improving and making progress?

Well, most guitar lessons are incredibly random and just end up gathering dust...

That's why I created the game-changing "5-Star" Award. It's the only method I know of that will help you take all the random songs, lessons, and bits of knowledge you've already learnt and...

Put it ALL together in a clear and concise way.

This means no more wasting time on your own figuring out how to get from A to Z! The simple aim is to get you up and running to become a "5-Star" guitarist in no time. Here's how it works:

  • PLAN - Get the exact tools to take all your fingerpicking, strumming, chords, scales, rhythm, and fretboard skills from beginner to intermediate and advanced levels.
  • QUIZ - Take a short and fun "quiz" to achieve each "star". The quizzes are laid back and enjoyable and you can take them as many times as you like.
  • MOTIVATION - Achieve a "star" and we'll salute your achievements on the "Honours Board" (this is optional if you prefer to be anonymous). 
  • DEVELOP - Boost your skillset and gain confidence as you achieve your "stars" and move onwards and upwards with clarity.
  • REWARDS - Completing the fifth star will give you the ability to play, perform, and even write music should you wish. This is a special achievement and to celebrate we will post you a fun gift!
5 Song Club Award v4

Connect all the dots in your playing from this day forth!

You can go at your own pace with everything in the "5-Star" Award.

I believe the '5-Star Award' is one of the secrets as to why my private students have been successful over the years and it's just another way that the Academy will almost guarantee your success.

Here's what just a handful of students are saying about the "5-Star" Award so far...

I really enjoyed reading it and will be using your tips to focus my practice time. 

I really like the "Star" Checklist - it's clear what I need to be doing. I also like how it feels like a friend talking, not a dry textbook.

- Denise Gillard

I think this is an absolutely wonderful book - extremely well thought out and put together.

You should be very proud of this! This is going to be a game changer for me and I'm sure many others!!


- Logan Hager

I am staggered how tight your "27 Tips" book is. 

I have no further specifics or final ideas due to the incredibly high standard you have set.

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

WARNING: Here's why you might want to avoid this:

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 a very advanced guitarist (this is for beginners, novices, 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 - 20 minutes or so most days a week is enough, but of course... more is better :)

On the flip side...

If you love simple songs taught in a clear way where NOTHING is assumed... you'd love to get your hands on a concrete plan... and you enjoy fingerstyle, strumming, rock, folk, pop, blues, and Travis picking...

Then this is for you.

And remember, this is ideal if you ONLY ever want to play purely for yourself OR you dream of playing at summer campfires, open mics, or BBQs.

Here’s What Will Happen When You say "maybe" Today...

Once you enter your details on the next page, your free gifts will posted out to you...

...And you will instantly receive your login details so you can access the Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy and the bonuses right away. 

You'll also be given a priority email address where you get VIP support from me. Help will always be on hand from me and my assistant Sofija... as and when you need it.

Begin With Clarity To Make Rapid Progress Over The Next 14 Days

...Or Easily End Your Free Trial

Now, you might be 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, you will see huge progress in a matter of days. Imagine in a few weeks relaxing in your garden on a hot day. You take a sip of a cool drink while the birds chirp above and you now truly feel like a "real" musician. The music you play brings joy to your soul and a smile to anyone who hears your elegant fingerpicking and strumming. This will all happen for you now.

Reason #2—Making a difference to the world. I want my legacy to be that of someone who has helped build a bridge so anyone who wants to learn the guitar can do so... while enjoying the process!

Reason #3— Because society is not always kind to adults learning new skills. Yet learning guitar at ANY age is 100% possible. Most of my students range in age from early 40s to late 80s and many had little confidence or experience when they began.... But I know from first-hand experience, that with the right lessons, you TOO can enjoy the massive health and social benefits of being a guitarist - no matter what your age.

Reason #4— I’m sick and tired of people charging a SMALL FORTUNE to teach misleading "hacks" and shortcuts... and then leaving you to figure it out on your own. It ticks me off! The truth is, this shouldn't be brutally hard work. Practice should be fun... and to make sure it is, I want to OVER DELIVER and get you feeling the joyous laughter and rush of creating beautiful music on your guitar right away.

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!"

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.

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

This is a very limited-time offer.

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 will order more, but there’s a lag right now, including LONG shipping & printing wait times.

So if you don’t sign up today, and we sell out of the book and goodies (which can happen any time) then you may have to wait up to 3-4 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 well over a THOUSAND dollars... will be disappearing soon.

As a father of a young son, and with lots of hobbies, I simply don't have the time to help everyone if the membership grows to be too big.

That means once I hit my “cap” of people signing up, 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 gifts before it’s too late!

My Rock-Solid Three-Part Guarantee

Money-Back Guarantee

Guarantee #1:

My Alternative Money-Back Guarantee

I'm not offering a guarantee...at least not in the "traditional" sense. 

I don't believe in them.

A typical money-back guarantee gives you a way to back out from achieving what you want. It allows you to give up on something that you want to achieve.

Not having a guarantee means you MUST take action and get on the road to achieving your goals.

...BUT here's what I AM offering. 

If you actually DO the exercises and give the lessons your time and effort (and you can show me you have), I'll GLADLY refund you your payment.

I haven't had a single refund yet. 

I'm doing this because I truly believe it's the best way to ensure you succeed. I know how it's easy to just refund something because you're "too busy", but I offer this type of guarantee because I KNOW you can succeed with this.

Cancel Anytime

Guarantee #2:

Cancel Anytime

There is NO contract!

You can quit anytime.

If you are worried about being "locked" into a contract or any sneaky payments being taken, the answer is a definite "No".

...And if you ever want to leave the Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy, we make it easy to do so.

Simply send us a quick email or head to the 'Member's Area' and quit with a few clicks of a button.

Your membership will end and future payments will instantly STOP.


Guarantee #3:

Lifetime Access to your bonuses and lessons

My hope is that you will enjoy the Academy so much that you do not want to leave...

...But if you do leave, you will still have 100% access to the bonuses AND all the monthly lessons that were released while you were a member. 

Just Say “MAYBE”,

And The Gifts Are 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”.

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

So why not try out the exact blueprint to guitar-playing success today?

Remember, the Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy really is the quickest, easiest, and smartest way to learn guitar if you're an adult acoustic player who loves fingerpicking, blues, rock, and pop.

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

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

This is unlike anything out there. It's not just some 'course' you use once and never again.

Instead, this is a fully-fledged "one-stop" solution to learning guitar specifically designed to give you results from day 1.

In short, you get the best of both worlds... 1) Easy-to-follow organised lessons and 2) Real support and a community.

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

How does the free trial work?

We will help transform your guitar playing in a step-by-step way all without the headaches.

No gimmicks. No contracts. 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 the guitar with true freedom, then you don’t have to do a thing, and we’ll automatically enrol you into our monthly subscription of just $47/mo. Cancel anytime without any hassle.

...but if you want to quit during the 14-day trial or at any point after, we make it easy to do so.

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

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.

When will I receive my free gifts?

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 which are only available here, including The Six String Lifer's Handbook, the exclusive "5-Star" Wallchart, guitar picks, etc., please allow 2 to 3 weeks for them to arrive.

Is all of this value really FREE?! What's the catch?

There’s no catch. When you say "maybe" today, you will get up to $1,598 of ‘guitar-playing secrets,’ including step-by-step guidance to help you learn stunning songs, know exactly what to practise, and transform your playing today.

All we ask is that you cover the one-time small payment of just $19.95 ($39.95 for international orders) 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 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 welcome bundle and Academy.

Do I need to be able to read TAB?

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 struggle to hear clearly ...But all the lessons do come with full TAB and notation.  

I even teach how to read TAB in an easy-to-follow way in the Breakthrough Beginner course, which you get as one of your free bonuses for trying out the Academy. 

I am 65 and have struggled on and off with guitar. Will this work for me at my age?

Age does NOT matter.

What counts is desire, willingness to learn, and the ability to follow my instructions while being patient and committed. 

If you're an older student, it may be that you have more life experience, more passion for music, and possibly a little more time to enjoy this wonderful instrument now...

...but if you are busy in life, rest assured the Academy will also give you clarity and the right tools to save you a tonne of practice time. 

We have a 92-year-old beginner as a member, and he is doing great. If he can do it, you can too!

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

The very first video you watch will help you immediately.

I call this the "Kickstarter" lesson and it dispels many myths about how to practise the guitar. It will show you where you have probably been going wrong (don't worry, those mistakes are common), and there are simple technical fixes for those of you who have tiny hands or even large 'sausage fingers'!

...But don't forget, 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.

How long do I get access to the lessons for?

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.

Please note - the free coaching is only valid while you are a member, but everything else is yours to keep forever - no need to send anything back.

What if I'm not satisfied with my subscription?

That is very rare. However, with that said, if you don't find your Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy subscription useful, including the $1,598 welcome bundle given to you for free today... then you can cancel anytime and we'll part as friends. ;)

And if you find that you can't get it to work for you, but you can show me how you've given it a real try, then I will refund your last payment.

I'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.

Do you have a guarantee?

I don't have one guarantee... I have THREE.

1) I guarantee if you put in the effort and don't see results, I'll refund your most recent payment. I do this because I want you to give it your all, but if you just can't make it work, that's okay, you'll be refunded.

2) I guarantee you can cancel anytime. No contracts, just a very simple and easy way to leave. 

3) I guarantee you will get lifetime access to the new monthly lessons released while you are a member, and the bonuses even if you leave (please note - the bonus coaching option is only valid while you are a member).

This all means you can try out the Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy for 14 days, and if you don't like it, and it doesn't work for you, we will give you a refund and you can keep the free gifts on me. ;)

I also want you to know that we guarantee your success! Once you sign up, you'll have complete support from me and my assistant, Sofija. We are both there to help answer any questions you may have and ensure you make wonderful guitar-playing progress... starting from day 1!
