Dear guitarist,

If you are constantly spinning your wheels with your guitar playing or you're a frustrated beginner...

Let me tell you a surprising story about a famous guitarist...

Eric Clapton was born in London at the end of WWII and, like most "post-war" kids, he had a tough upbringing.

...But when he saw Buddy Holly playing on TV one evening, Eric's heart raced with excitement...

...And he decided right then he was going to be a guitarist. 

But after weeks of practice, Eric threw his arms up in the air and later he said:

"I couldn't even tune a guitar, let alone play one!"

He felt overwhelmed and you may know this feeling too.

He struggled to get his hand around the neck of the guitar and slow chord changes and buzzing notes were killing his motivation.

His songs didn't sound like actual songs at first!

Well, after months of long, hard practice, he started to improve, but then...

This shocking moment happened.

Eric took a beautiful girl to a coffee shop to show off his guitar skills, BUT...

Fear grabbed him by the throat, his face turned white, and he froze. 

He couldn't even play a single note.

The beautiful girl was embarrassed, the crowd laughed, and his shoulders slumped as he made the lonely journey home.

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

That moment haunted Eric, and he even thought about quitting.

If you've ever had a mean comment about your guitar playing, you may have felt the same.

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

Instead, he practiced methodically with proper technique...

...And after months of practice, he took to the stage.

He saw jaws dropping in the audiences of London's finest venues...

Night after night, Eric passionately played his now iconic signature licks and riffs. 

The transformation was complete. 

And the rest is history.

Imagine your fingers gliding up and down the fretboard as you play the music you love with confidence

Unlike Clapton, you probably do NOT want to play in front of 100,000s.

Instead, you probably want to play the songs YOU love for yourself.

...But maybe you have a secret desire to impress friends & family members, jam at open mics or church...

...Or even play in a band!

Plus, having strangers and loved ones compliment you on your playing is a wonderful bonus.

Well, all of this is 100% possible for you too.

With the right practice, I want to show you how to "connect all the dots" of guitar playing to make this happen. 

You can achieve your guitar dreams...

 Even if you only ever want to play for yourself

If you find yourself saying: 

“I have no ear for music, no plan, no motivation," or "I feel like I'm going backwards!” - 

...Well, let me tell you, one key reason is that guitar tuition is too random. 

Imagine going to the grocery store, but they only sell bananas.

You have to walk across the street to buy apples and go somewhere else to buy oranges. 

It's frustrating! 

That's how guitar tuition is for most of us.

The reason why is that most tutors are great players, but they've never learnt how to teach. 

They use a random scattergun way of teaching, which rarely works - especially with older adults.

So it's no surprise there are 100,000s of guitars gathering dust in attics across the world.

...And if you're struggling or you feel like your practice is going backwards, it all comes down to this one question:

What's your

"primary progress destroyer"?

In my 11+ years of teaching, I've found there are three main problems students face.

I call these the "Primary Progress Destroyers".

Do you suffer from any of these?

  • No Repertoire of Songs - Are your songs boring, hard to play, or don't sound like songs?
  • No Technique - Do you suffer from sore fingers, bad timing, or slow chord changes?
  • No Clear Practice Plan - Frustrated by not knowing exactly what to practice each day?

If your motivation is dwindling or you've hit a brick wall with your practice, likely...

It is NOT your fault.

In my vast teaching experience, I've found it's NOT a lack of ability that is causing your problems.

So be kind to yourself when practicing and watch out for those negative voices in your head.

You're very likely not "tone deaf" (that is statistically rare), you can develop your rhythm, and you DO have the skills to succeed wonderfully on the guitar...

That's why I've spent the last 5 years formulating and perfecting a simple solution called...

The "5G Accelerator System"

a.k.a the '10x Method' and 'Musicality Triggers'.

The five "secret" ingredients most guitarists need (and crave) to be able to succeed

The "5G Accelerator System"  is my unique method also known as the '10x Method' and 'Musicality Triggers'. (They are part of the same system that will help you learn songs faster).

It's trusted by 200+ monthly members who use it to play stunning music and to keep themselves from feeling lost on the guitar... for good.

With this method, you can confidently play your favourite songs and make any "confused" feelings a distant memory.

The "G" in the "5G Accelerator System" represents the word "goals".

These five specific goals are what often make the difference between a student succeeding or giving up the guitar.

In short, the "5G Accelerator System" is the roadmap to help and here it is in a nutshell:

  • #1 - A CLEAR AND CONCISE PRACTICE PLAN - Discover exactly what to practice to make fast improvements without feeling overwhelmed ever again.
  • #2 - PLAY STUNNING SONGS - Perform a repertoire of beautiful and timeless, beginner-friendly songs.
  • #3 - "CORE FUNDAMENTAL TECHNIQUE" - Improve all your technique to make everything you play "flow".
  • #4 - GET MOTIVATED - Guarantee your long-term progress with these proven methods to making practice "addictive".
  • #5 - IMPROVED MUSICALITY - Refine the "hidden" skills needed to play your songs like a pro and with clarity.

Give yourself a score for the above five areas on a scale of 1-10.

1 = awful.

10 = perfect.

Most guitarists are around a 3-6 If I’m honest, but you want to aim to score a 7 for each of the "5Gs".

Because even just struggling with one area can have a massive negative impact on your overall playing.


On the flip side, improving one of the 5Gs will help with the others and this will mean you will improve ALL of your playing.

Think of the "5Gs" of guitar playing like the armour of an ancient samurai protecting you against attacks of self-doubt and confusion.

Now, I'll show you how the "5G Accelerators" can help you improve each of these key areas so you can score a 7 at least, and then build confidently upwards from there…

...Meaning you will be able to cherish every moment you pick up your guitar.

To get you to reach this goal faster, I've introduced the '5 Song Club' Award. 


Learn five songs, and show us how to play them in a video, and you will join an exclusive bunch of guitarists.

The '5 Song Club' is a unique way to motivate you, give you a clear goal, and gain more confidence, prestige, and respect.

The songs can be very simple, and you don't have to play them like Clapton. The "5-Song Club" is about motivation, fun, and supporting you on your journey.

Who Exactly Is the Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy For?

The Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy is specifically for you if:

  • You're an acoustic guitarist who wants to learn in an easygoing way
  • You like fingerpicking, strumming, blues, folk and other classic acoustic styles
  • You want to learn at your own pace with a clear plan
  • You are an adult learner age 40+
  • You're a beginner or early intermediate guitarist looking to improve
  • You sometimes need more support, motivation, and encouragement

WARNING: Who Should AVOID This...

The Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy is likely NOT for you if:

  • You're already an advanced guitarist
  • You want to learn complex theory, advanced chords, or "modes"
  • You play metal, jazz, "shred" or other non-acoustic based styles.
  • You are not willing to commit time to improving your guitar skills...

Speaking of Commitment... Let's Be Realistic!

If you are NOT willing to put in the time required, this will not work. 

You don't need to practice for hours per day, but...

You do need at least some good practice time most days per week to make proper progress. 

The academy will help, but you have to put your hand up and say:

"I'm ready to give it my best"...

Even if that just means committing a small amount of your time to practicing each day.  

think you're not good enough?

here's why you too can succeed

Every single student I have ever taught doubted their own ability to play the guitar at some point.

Eric Clapton struggled, so did I, and many of my students struggled...

But every student who stuck with the guitar made wonderful progress. They can now play beautiful music and they now have massive confidence in their playing.

...Because they didn't quit.

You can have this too. 

Even Carlos, who had a brain injury, said this:

"I’m turning 50 this summer and suffer from a traumatic brain injury. I love the way Dan makes it so simple to understand. It’s super fun and I absolutely love it.

I don’t even feel like I’m practicing. Yesterday I practiced for almost 2 whole hours and didn’t even realize."

I truly believe from my vast teaching experience that ANYONE can play guitar and that the Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy can help you too.

...But don't just take it from me, you can read what other members have said recently:

Powerful memories are brought back to you. Memories such as the first dance from your wedding, songs that remind you of your kids, or even old tunes a loved one would play on the piano. 

The music washes over you like a waterfall and you play without a care in the world.

And when your neighbours and loved ones hear you play, their eyes will widen as they are stunned by your playing. 

Life is short, and you live it fully, feeling vibrant, energetic, and truly happy with your guitar in hand.

And who knows, you might get lucky and not waste more time and money than you already have. 

If you want to go down this route, that's fine as most people do...

Remember though, most people end up giving up and letting their guitar gather dust in the attic along with regrets of what could have been.

You can remove the headaches of trying to learn guitar alone - forever!

Think about all the time, energy, and cost you'll save with this pro advice at your fingertips.

Thanks for reading and remember this...

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

I want to help you because I know how the academy can transform your guitar playing forever just like it has for so many others already.

Thanks again,

See these comments on just some of the lessons from other members

Diane Beatty

Diane Beatty I’m actually surprised, I got this almost down. I like the palm muting, and the finger picking of this piece, not only that the hammer ons and offs are coming along. Really fun to do!


 Jack Edmunds Sr

Jack Edmunds Sr. What I really like about DTAA is it is a structured course. You have specific lessons to work on for the month. I think it is great that depending on one's experience level, they can focus on these specific lessons or find other material to learn if they breeze through the lessons for the month.

 Roxanne Lee

Roxanne Lee Wow! I was just screaming this tune on my Ibanez electric and I surprised myself that I could actually play it! You’re a wonderful teacher and music arranger!


 Nancy Bradnick

Nancy Bradnick Oh my gosh thank you for doing this song! Awesome lesson. Level 2 is perfect for practicing musicality. This makes me very happy😎

Tim Sowell

Tim Sowell One of the things I love about your instruction is bringing up things like the elbow shoulder axis…. all hints like that are really invaluable!!! Thanks!!


James Hooper

James Hooper One of the most beneficial lessons to me in my first year of DTAA!I know you’ve hit these strategies before but the timing here for me is perfect. Really seeing a difference. Thanks!

Peter Roberts

Peter Roberts I’ve watched pro guitar players and always wondered how they can move up and down all the frets. That’s a cool lesson Dan and knocks on a few doors for opening the mind to some lead melodies. Thanks!

Diane Heaton

Diane Heaton I love the comments about the guitar position being against the heart, and has a special meaning for me I want to thank you for the addition of the closed captioning. Since I wear hearing aids, it’s a plus for me.

Your Questions Answered

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

This is unlike anything out there. Most courses are too long, complex, and confusing for struggling beginners. 

Here, you get a "one-stop" solution to learning guitar, the best of both worlds - the power and ease of use of instantly accessible lessons ordered in a clear way AND the support of a real teacher and community but at a fraction of the cost of private tuition.

Is there a monthly fee?

Yes, to be clear, this costs $37 per month. For that, you get the new monthly lessons, over $391 worth of bonuses to keep forever, and all your guitar tuition needs are taken care of quickly and easily. 

Remember, you can quit anytime and there is no contract.

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?

If you've never played before, you will need to begin with my Breakthrough Beginner course. 

You can purchase this course separately or get it for free (upon request) when you join the Academy. 

Just be aware, the lessons in the Academy are aimed at guitarists who have at least 1 month's playing experience. 

Is this for electric or acoustic guitarists?

It is primarily for acoustic guitarists, and everything is taught on the acoustic guitar inside.

We focus on acoustic techniques such as fingerpicking, strumming, Travis picking, acoustic blues, and more. Saying that, everything you learn inside can easily be played on an electric and many students enjoy playing both types of guitars.

Do I need to be able to read TAB?

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

All the lessons come with full TAB and notation and I do teach how to read TAB in a simple and confidence-building way though, should you wish to learn.

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

The “Kickstarter" video will instantly help with your chord changes and technique.   


...But 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.  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 membership, which you can access immediately, meaning you can begin this new chapter of your guitar-playing journey in just seconds.


Plus, you will get the Guitarists Get Theory book (worth $97 and not available elsewhere) posted to your door for free upon joining.

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.


You will also get lifetime access to the three bonuses (worth $391) and the Guitarists Get Theory book is yours to keep forever. 

Why do you not offer refunds for this?

Mainly to prevent people from joining to get the book for free and then quitting and asking for a refund.

Most students who join the Academy have already purchased one or more of my other products and know they are high quality. 

Even though there are no refunds, don't forget you can quit easily and anytime. 

Is it true if I quit, I can't come back?

Yes. When I used to teach full time, some students would stop lessons for a bit, come back, and stop again. Ultimately, they were just not committed enough and usually quit for good. 

It's the same with this membership. I used to allow people to come back, but some would blitz my time with lots of questions, quit, rejoin, and then just quit again, and keep spinning their wheels.

Since not allowing quitters to come back, the quality of the membership and the community has risen dramatically. 

For a limited time, you can join for just $57 $47 $37 Per Month
