Dear fingerpicking guitarist,

What I can tell you though, is that I am very experienced in teaching adults...

....aged 40+ how to fingerpick properly, play with great technique and learn guitar in the most fun way possible so they love every second of their playing.

Introducing Fingerstyle 101 (the brand new and massively updated 2nd edition)

  1. 1
    Part I - Learn the fundamentals of fingerpicking - learn how to play with great technique, be comfortable with the absolute basics, fix the most common fingerpicking mistakes and have the tools needed to get a rock-solid foundation to fingerpick to a high standard.
  2. 2

Fingerstyle 101 is specifically written for those who are 40+, new to fingerpicking or have struggled with it in the past

The good news about learning an instrument is that it is good for your brain.

A recent BBC study* on identical twins even showed that doing something creative each day can reduce your brain age by 6 years in just one month!

The guitar is perfect for this sort of creativity.

In the book I show you how to be creative while fingerpicking so you can get these big potential benefits.

Beware! Fingerstyle 101 is NOT for very advanced players or those who want a "quick fix"

If you have played for decades, or you can play loads of songs and are 100% comfortable with fingerpicking, you may learn a few tricks, but the book is probably not for you.

If you want to play like Paul Simon, Eric Clapton, Tommy Emmanuel or James Taylor in an hour, let me tell you, that ain`t gonna happen. 

The book is definitely NOT a quick fix but if you want an enjoyable and easy-to-follow plan for your fingerpicking success, then this is for you.

Read these reviews for the 1st edition but realise this version is even BETTER!

Dan Thorpe


"I`m Dan from Birmingham UK (not Alabama).

I used to struggle on the guitar. I don`t want you to struggle like I did.

Teaching guitar to those who are learning later on in life is something I am passionate about. 

That means - I want to teach you how to play with better technique, reduce tension and pain, be comfortable on the guitar, learn songs faster.

Ultimately, my mission is to help you have much more fun fingerpicking on your guitar so you can cherish every moment with this wonderful instrument...

And do so with a smile on your face".

Dan Thorpe
