Dear guitarist,

If you are fed up with wasting time and money on misleading lessons that get you nowhere...

Spinning your wheels with random lessons or playing songs that "don't sound like actual songs".

...But you want to have 10x more fun on the guitar starting today...

Dan Thrope Side_3

I'm going to give you a simple 99.99% done-for-you plan to...

Fingerpick and Strum Beautiful Music You Love For Yourself, Loved Ones Or at an Open Mic

...At Your Own Pace Without Getting Overwhelmed


...And I'll explain the one thing that can decide success or failure on the guitar, why legends such as Eric Clapton, Paul Simon, and Tommy Emmanuel are so good... And an almost 200-year-old method which can help you play songs faster and with more ease.

  • It doesn’t matter if you can't play any songs yet or you struggle with the "Death Grip", finger issues, or small hands.  
  • It doesn’t matter if you lack motivation right now or you struggle to make time to practise... 
  • It doesn’t matter if your stomach churns as you feel you "lack talent", worry you're "too old" or feel that you've been "wasting your time".

...Because if you can tune up, you can follow these straightforward lessons for 20 minutes or so per day.

And make rapid progress in the next 14 days and beyond.

I'll explain how in a moment, but first here's my story which may surprise you...

I Know What It's Like To Feel You Don't Have...
"Natural Talent"

At 15, I wasn't your typical musician-in-the-making.

Sports dominated my life. I captained the cricket team, was a talented athlete, and played volleyball for my country.

However, my dreams of making it to the national volleyball team were dashed due to "not being tall enough".

I was crushed.

Guitarist on TV Side_4

...But then came the game-changing moment in my life

It was a school trip to Germany.

For the 16-hour coach ride, I borrowed my sister's Sony Walkman.

I immersed myself in the music of Nirvana, The Doors, R.E.M., The Kinks, and Stereophonics.

Amidst the cobblestone streets of Cologne, a connection sparked with a girl called Natalie as we talked at length about music.

At home, I was eager to learn guitar.

Driven not just by the desire to impress Natalie, but by an inner calling to express myself in ways I never thought possible.

Yet I'd never been "musical" and chronic childhood hearing issues filled me with doubt.

My best friend was a skilled musician, and he gave me the belief I could do it.

After showing me some "lightbulb" moments and easy riffs, I was hooked but...

Frustration, No Self-Belief, And Countless False Starts plagued me...
You Name It, I Faced It

...And despite teasing from my sister about my lack of musical skills and after enduring a cringe-worthy first gig...

...I stuck with it. Each chord was a battle, each note a victory in the war against self-doubt.

And then I joined a band. 

One of our first gigs was a "Battle of the Bands" competition.

As we prepared for the gig, the nagging voice in my head spoke up telling me "I wasn't good enough".

In front of a crowd of unforgiving strangers, my heart thumped like a Travis-picked bassline on overdrive BUT...

A single electrifying performance changed everything

We played an unforgettable show.

As the first chord rang out, a torrent of emotion surged forth, washing away doubt and uncertainty.

The music flowed effortlessly through my fingertips, self-doubt melted away, replaced by self-belief.

The applause, the joy, and victory, as my band won that night, was like a symphony in my heart.

It was a simple moment, and even though it all started out to impress a girl... The journey was deeper than that.

I realised I wanted to teach others and help illuminate their path when lost in the shadows of doubt.

Now, Having taught over 120 students in person, authored two best-selling books, and reaching thousands globally...

And with over 11 years of full-time teaching experience, I want you to gain confidence from day one.

...And show how you too can achieve your dreams on the guitar...

  • If you only want to play purely for yourself and experience the happiness and therapy of music or...
  • You want to leave jaws dropping at "open mics", campfires, or BBQs.

Because everyone deserves the chance to express themselves through music and doing so will enhance your life - physically, socially, and emotionally. 

If I'd known back then what I know now, I truly believe I'd have been able to shave years off my learning journey...

And that is what I do for my students inside the Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy, who often make more progress in months than I made in years.

And if you find yourself saying...

My first Registry of Guitar Tutors certificate of qualification

“My songs don't sound like actual songs and it feels like my playing is going backwards

...but I have no idea why!”

I've discovered what I call "Self-Doubt Syndrome", which is a major cause of slow progress.

This means it isn't a lack of ability that is the problem. 

It's likely the inertia caused by ineffective teaching methods...

And NOT being kind to yourself when you practise that is holding you back. 

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 the backbone of the Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy, which is now trusted by 100s of members around the world to play stunning songs with confidence...

...And rid them of self-doubt for good.

Think of the '10x Method' as like removing a blindfold so you can experience how good it feels to put ALL the pieces of the guitar-playing jigsaw together...

...and end slow progress for good.

Inspired by the "Beethoven of the guitar", Fernando Sor, and his book written in 1830, the 10x Method is a simple way of practising that has been a game-changer for my students.

I know you don't want to be a "star", but you can apply the "10x Method" and see immediate breakthroughs just like these Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy students have...

Today, I'm going to give you the 10x Method and...

A "One-Stop" Solution For Transforming your playing

...Within The Next 14 days

All You Have To Do Is Say “MAYBE”

And the gifts are yours...

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

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 but beautiful songs taught in a clear way where NOTHING is assumed... You want or need clarity, motivation, and a concrete plan... And you enjoy fingerstyle, strumming, rock, folk, pop, blues, and Travis picking...

Then this is for you.

...And the Academy is specifically designed to work for you no matter if you're busy OR you are retired and have lots of free time.

And it's suitable if you ONLY want to play 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 gifts will be 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 both me and my assistant Sofija... as and when you need it.

And remember you will...

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

...Or Easily End Your 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 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 are chirping as you now truly feel like a "real" musician. The music you play brings joy to your soul and a wide smile to the face of anyone who hears you play. This can 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!"

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!

John Hall

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.

Joanne Crook

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 folks who are ready to transform their playing.

But also...

1.) I have less than 200 physical copies of the book and bundle. I will order more, but as I use multiple suppliers for the different aspects of the bundle, the next batch will take time to get sorted.

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

2.) Your chance to secure this incredible GIFT... including a 14-day trial with step-by-step coaching and support from me that normally costs well over a THOUSAND dollars... may be disappearing soon.

As a father to Archie, my 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 removing 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 gifts before it’s too late.

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 latest monthly 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 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.

Note: there are no refunds on the bundle - only the most recent monthly payment.

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.

I want you to experience what it’s like to be a confident, happy, and self-assured guitarist every time you play.

And keep in mind, just some short and focused practice each day using these specific methods is all it takes. 10 minutes is good, 20 minutes is great, but of course, more is better if you want to practise more! And once you begin, you will want to practise more!

It all starts when YOU start.

I PROMISE You This...

If you give this a try, we will have your back and we will do everything we can to ensure you succeed starting today.

Now is your time to start transforming your guitar playing.

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

To your success,

Dan Thorpe

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 $42/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 welcome bundle 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 between 7-21 days for delivery. It may be sooner though but please take that as the expected delivery time as we keep up with orders.

This sounds great! 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 you've given it a real try, then I will refund your last monthly payment. (Note: there are no refunds on the welcome bundle).

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 monthly payment (there are no refunds on the bundle though). 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.

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, you can easily leave. 

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!
