Dear guitarist,

If you are constantly "spinning your wheels" with your guitar playing... or you're a frustrated beginner... I want to offer you a "one stop solution" for transforming your guitar playing today.

Here's the deal: 

I'm looking for guitarists who are eager to fingerpick and strum beautiful folk, rock, and blues music on the guitar...

...And cherish many hours of joy playing REAL songs while learning at a pace that suits you..

If you're An Adult Guitaist Age 40+

Today, I'm Going to Give You

Simple 99.99% done for you


So you can Become the Guitarist You Dream of Being...


But That’s Not All...

To ensure your success... and to give you the biggest leg-up possible with your guitar playing...

I’m going to GIVE YOU EVERYTHING YOU NEED to help you enjoy every moment of your practice,  including over $3857 worth of step-by-step guitar playing instructions and pro secrets ANYONE can use...

Guitar Teaching

Absolutely FREE!

Yep, it’s true.

And if you’re still wondering if this is right for you, I want to make this crystal clear...

  • It doesn’t matter if you’ve never been able to play a SINGLE SONG properly as yet... 
  • It doesn’t matter if you have bad habits, the "death grip" or slow chord changes... (we will fix these and you’ll see why in a moment...)
  • It doesn't matter if you suffer with arthritis or a bad memory (I'll give you EXACT solutions to these issues...)
  • It doesn’t matter if you lack practice time, motivation, or you're easily distracted and need focus... (I'll show you how exactly how to rememdy this quickly)
  • And it DEFINITELY doesn’t matter if you’re not “technical” (if you can tie your shoelaces you can follow these instructions).

As well as show you, step-by-step, how to practice with laser precision focus without getting confused, overhwelmed, or stuck...

Now, You Might Be Wondering...

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

Dan Thrope Side_3

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 benefits of being a musician

Many people know about the social and mental befnefits of playing the guitar but did you know that being a musician can reduce the chances getting demetia by 1/3*? And that being creative regularly can reduce your brain age by 10 years?**

Well, the benefits of playing guitar are endless, and I know you’re here right now because of one of two reasons:

  • Reason #1 - You do NOT want to join a band but you want to learn gutiar to unwind and relax. You'd love to play songs you recognise and maybe even one day share your love for music with others. Fond memories of your mum lighting up the room playing piano or  your dad singing songs after a few whsiekys may have fueled a lifelong dream to play guitar, but in the past life got in the way.

    Now the kids may have "fled the nest" and you have the time, but you worry you might feel just a bit “silly” about learning guitar as an adult or worried about what others will think of you if you don't succeed...
  • Reason #2 - You've poured your into trying to learn guitar. You may have multiple guitars but some days the only reason to pick them up is to "dust them off". You may have had lessons in the past but your tutor had no proper teaching plan and all this may have squeezed the life out of your motivation like a python strangling its prey.... And no matter how much you try you just can’t seem to get the hang of it.

    You may worry you're "not good enough" or that dont have enough talent to succeeed and this feeling churns your stomach like a ticking time bomb of anxiety in your gut.

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 Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy as well as the author of two best-selling books.

I don't have a degree in music and even though I've played many gigs, recorded and relesed dozens of songs, and even toured a little, but there are better guiarists around than me, and I struggled on the guitar for a few years at first...

...But unlike many guitar teachers...

I know what it takes to learn 

guitar when you feel

you have no "natural talent"

I've taught 10,000+ hours of private lessons and am a qualified RGT instructor, but more importantly I get real results for students from day 1 and it's my personal mission to help students like you break the shackles of trying to learn guitar the conventional way.

My 1st ever Registry of Guitar Tutors certificate!

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

And Have Changed


To date my books, courses and videos have helped over 1 million+ guitarists worldwide make fast and big improvements...

...And I know how disheartening it can be when other people make playing guitar look easy so iyou ever feel this way it...

Turns Out, You Weren’t The Only One...

Well, 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 the students who succeed

Versus those who fail...?”

For weeks, I was searching for a clear answer to this question...

Then a student told me a story about the great Eric Clapton that helped clarify 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 with an echoing thud as a new world opened up to him...

Right then, in that raw, electrifying moment, Eric made a resolute 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 weeks of practice, his frustation boiled up.

Year later when talking about his early days with the guitar, Eric admit:

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

...But slowly he started to piece the jigsaw together. 

And with butterflies in his belly, Eric took a beautiful girl to a coffee shop to impress her with his guitar skills, BUT...

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

He couldn't play a single note.

Not a solitary note escaped his trembling grasp, and the audience's laughter became a tormenting echo that followed him on his solitary trek home, his shoulders slumped beneath the weight of defeat.

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

He thought about quitting.

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

Dan Railway Station

Instead, he forged a solemn 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 found the confidence to once again stand before an audience.

...And taking center stage in one of London's hallowed venues, Eric inhaled deeply, palms slick with perspiration, and commenced to play. 

At First, You Could Hear A Pin Drop...

...But jaws were dropping when the crowd heard this ordinary Guy Playing Guitar With A Wild 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 would then quicky become a household name and one of the most loved guitarists ever.

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

In a moment, I'll show you the lessons learnt on his journey, but if you find yourself saying…

"My songs dont 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 "ROP" (short for "Random Overload Practice") that is the real cause of slow and frustrsting progress.

'ROP' sums up how most people learn guitar. 

Many YouTube and in person tutors are fantastic guitarists but many struggle to effectively impart their knowledge to their students...

... especially to those learning later in life or lacking confidence.

This often leaves students in a state of confusion, with no clear path to follow, songs that take months or even years to master, and persistent issues like the dreaded "death grip" left unresolved.

This means slow progress is not your fault.

That's why I've spent the last 3 years formaulting Developing the 'Musicicality Triggers'...

The 'Musicality Triggers' are now trusted by thousands of adult guitarist around the world to play stunning sogns with ease...

...And rid them from having sore fingers, endless self doubt, and the frustrations of not knowing what to practice to make progress.

***IMAGE  - get this redone with musciality triggers on it

The Musicality Triggers

Think of the 'Musicality Triggers' like taking off a blindfold and seeing with clarity how to put the pieces the musiacal jigsaw together for the first itme... you can play stunning songs, fix your bad habits, and transform your confidence,...

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

The Musicality Triggers (which I often call the '5Gs') are are:

the missing 1% that 

can be the difference 

between giving up and 


 on The guitar

This means with some practice and a few simple tweaks to what you ve already been doing, you can change the direction of your guitar playing quickly.

I've even used the 'triggers' with my son to help him go from frustrated to play music... to loving it.

Just imangine youself relaxing in your garden. You take a sip of a cold drink while the birds are chirping above you. Then you confidently strum and fingerpick and you play without a care in the world. Other people love the sound of your playing and you finally feel like a real muscian. This is all going to happen for you now.

Reason #2—I know that once you start using the DTAA you will share your joy of music with others. Music is a wonderful healer, and brings people together... And if any of these people you inspire also try out the academy it means I get to share these lessons with more people and help 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 and wasted away over her last few years once my grandfather had passed away. If she'd had a purpose, I truly believe her life would have been different. It's my mission to build a bridge so everyone can play guitar. For years I've specialised in helping adult learners who range from early 40s to late 80s. Every student I have ever taught doubted their own ability to play the guitar at first, yet I know from first hand experience with the right lessons you TOO can enjoy the massive 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 against 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 a single dime. ;)

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!

Why Time Is Of The Essence...

I was being taught to read music and learn the notes on the fretboard 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!

John Hall

When l became involved with Dan, l 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 practicing 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.  Thanks dan for the brilliant lessons.

This is a VERY limited time offer.

Like I said earlier, I’m only accepting a small handful of highly-motivated folks who are ready to tranform their playig with the 'Musicality Triggers', the community, and the game-changing lessons inside the DTAA.

But also...

1.) I have less than 500 physical copies of my GUITARISTS Get Theory book, the "cheatsheet' and custome picks... 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 may be happening sooner than I realize...) then you may have to wait up to 6 months OR LONGER to receive physical copies of our books...

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 young son and a busy life, I simply wont have the time to help more students in the future if the memebership grows to be too big.

Yes, I have an assistant and a small team but I want to be present and part of the journey with you.

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

So if you're here right now, and you want STEP-BY-STEP coaching on how to becoe the guiartis you dreams of being... and start playing stunnign music on your guiart practically overnight...

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

Greg Michaels

Greg Michaels I am probably just another in a long line of students that simply want to say thank you. Since joining I can now say that I am 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 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.

Ian Avery

Ian Avery 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 Copeland 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 we ignored for so many years. Today’s lesson simple but never knew these small tricks!! Look forward to be a Rock star soon:)!

Dennis Sullivan

Dennis Sullivan 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 Powers 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.


"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."

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 not just some 'course' you use once and never again. 

Instead, this is a fully fledged "one-stop" solution to learning guitar. You get the best of both worlds.... Easy to follow organised lessons at your fingetips that you can use anytime, AND the support of a real teacher and community but at a fraction of the cost of private tuition.... And 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 tranfrosmt your guitar playing life without paying me a dime. 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 playng guitar ith true freedom, then you don’t have to do a thing, and we’ll automatically enroll you into our monthly Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy subscription of 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. A: 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" Cheatsheet, Pick, and Pen, please allow 2 to 3 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 $3,857 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 $29.95 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 $29.95 printing & shipping fee will seem insignificant, especially when you realise you won't need to spend any money an countless books or random courses, or waste any more precious time searching YouTube for the answers. Everything you need to sucedd 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 closed captions/subtitles which are great if you sometimes struggle to hearly clearly. 

...But 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.

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 good age to learn. You have life experience, passion for music, and possibly a little more time to enjoy this wonderful instruemnt now – we have a 92-year-old beginner as a member, and he is doing great. If he can do it, you can too.

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

A: Yes, the initial lessons that are laid out for you will instantly help with your technique. Most people are never taught to play guitar woth proper technique but the fist thing I do is help students make big improvements to your technque....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. All in a laid-back and easy-to-follow way.

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 'guitar secrets' bundle (worth $3,857) 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 $3,857 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 that don't find Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy useful, then you can cancel anytime and we won't hold it against you.

Q. Do You Have A Guarantee?

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