  • Master The 10 Most Important Fingerpicking Patterns: Unlock Thousands Of Songs Effortlessly And Rediscover The Joy Of Playing Guitar

  • Guaranteed Results in Just 20 Minutes a Day: Achieve better technique, increased confidence, and more fun with your guitar

Think you're "too old" for guitar?

Do you struggle with sore fingers, arthritis, or have small hands? My student's average age is 67... And they saw results on Day 1.

Join them to play popular songs including "Amazing Grace", improve your motivation, memory, and get the holy grail of playing... "Unlocking" the fretboard in just 20 minutes per day.

No boring theory, complex scales, or brutal chords needed

From the studio of guitar teacher, Dan Thorpe:

Dear Guitarist,

Are you struggling with your guitar playing? I understand. That’s why I’ve crafted the Amazing Grace Masterclass. This timeless song is so simple that anyone can play it, even with just one finger.

I'll show you in a moment how you can learn it today. First, let me share Mike’s story with you:

Mike came to me desperate for help. He had a small tremor in his right hand and mild arthritis. Despite his successful career as a top engineer, he felt "too dumb" to learn guitar.

He joked that when he tuned his guitar, even the family dog would run upstairs to hide!

I'm Dan Thorpe, I'm not a world-famous guitarist and I don't have a degree in music 

However, I've tutored over 120 beginner students (both male & female) in person and....

...Transformed thousands more worldwide into skilled, confident intermediate guitarists ...guiding them from being "stuck" to playing beautiful music.

a couple of hours a day Of Practice... BUT He Felt Like he Was Getting Worse

He spent $1000s on books and courses - most would just leave him feeling more confused. 

And to make things worse, Mike's previous teacher...

...NEVER once taught him a single lesson on playing with proper technique.

Yet in our very FIRST lesson Mike discovered...

The game-changing secrets Most guitar teachers...
Do Not know

...This included how to instantly end finger soreness, reduce pressure by 10x, improve the tremor...

And make his fingers move and "flow" freely.

Over the weeks, I showed him more "lightbulb moments".

He even cONFIDENtly jammed with an old buddy and he told me our lessons gave him...

"more breakthroughs in 7 Weeks
than in 7 years"

Mike's pinnacle moment came when playing "Amazing Grace" for his wife...

When he finished, he could hear a pin drop... and then he saw her eyes well up with tears.

She proudly saw his transformation as joy "oozed" from him when he played.

He's now "hooked" on practice and these days even the pooch loves his playing.

Mike even regularly performs at his local open mic but mostly LOVES playing guitar purely for himself.

Classical Guitarist

The truth is, teaching Mike made me realise The Importance Of teaching:

a crystal clear, Simple step-by-step method... That Erases confusion and overwhelm

...And after teaching guitar to other adults over the last 11 years...

I've refined my teaching methods into a tried and tested system which is now known as...

The T.E.S.T Method
a trusted Roadmap Used By THOUSANDS of acoustic guitarists worldwide

This is the exact tool that will help you beat the "7 Deadly Sins"

...And cherish your practice time, increase your motivation, and give you rock-solid reassurance you are making real progress.

It just takes 20 minutes per day to apply.

And it's why 9/10 of my students are now HAPPY and CONFIDENT guitarists.

This method provides a clear path to playing guitar with true freedom and increased musicality... Even if you've tried before but "life got in the way".

And if you're an "empty nester" with more time, you need clear, relaxed instruction.

Let me show you how...

Oh, and in case you're wondering...


There is no catch

We all know there are websites promising you "freebies" or a 1-month free trial, but then they secretly stick you into a program that charges your card every month.

You will just make one simple payment today and you can order it when you click the button below...

And I've kept the price for this as low as possible and in case you're wondering why, well, there are actually three specific reasons...

  • My hope is that you will love this book/course and then try out my other products and resources further down the line. 
  • It's my way of giving back. Originally, this was going to be a video course costing $197, but I know not everyone has that sort of money, so instead I put those lessons into an easy-to-follow course that EVERYONE can enjoy. I love teaching and want to help as many guitarists as I can.

Your Questions Answered?

What exactly am I getting when I order Fingerstyle 101?

You can either get the Fingerstyle 101:

- Paperback book (with free shipping).

- PDF which you can download in an instant. 

- The "Deluxe Video" bundle which comes with both the above, the HD video version of the course, and loads of great extras. 

Whichever version you order, you're also getting a series of bonuses (worth $289.95) to help you play stunning songs and have fun immediately. Plus you get free lifetime access to the Fingerstyle 101 Facebook group.

Finally, there is a no-questions-asked 90-day money-back guarantee to put your mind at rest. You don't even need to return the book to get the instant refund.

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

This is like no other course I've come across. You only have to see the countless testimonials on this page to see how this book can transform your playing. 

You will find highly motivating lessons, a focus on REAL technique in detail (which sadly most teachers gloss over), and a solid step-by-step plan on improving your fingerpicking, rhythm, musicality, and more.

The bottom line is the course will give you results so that once you get up and running, you will truly fall in love with playing the guitar.

How does the money-back guarantee work?

Simply try the book/course, enjoy the bonuses, and if you don't like it, just contact us and we will immediately refund you.

Honestly, I believe in this so much and know it will be a game changer for you, but if it is not for you for any reason, we will ensure you get a prompt refund.

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

Our website is as secure as can be. You can pay via PayPal or credit/debit card and we use ThriveCart to process the orders.

This is an established payment processor used around the world to process millions of dollars of payments so you can rest assured your private details are safe.

I'm 72, the course sounds great, but I’ve only played for 8 months and still struggle with chords. Will I still find it useful?

Yes. I do not promise miracles (I will leave that to others), but I am vastly experienced at turning frustrated guitarists into real guitar players.

This is a step-by-step course and the bottom line is this...

As long as you practice and do exactly as I teach, you will make progress in every area of your playing... meaning clearer chords, faster chord changes, better tone, fewer mistakes, a stunning repertoire of fingerpicking patterns to play, and the ability to play beautiful songs and music.

It takes practice, of course, but simply follow the instructions and you will see these results. 

How long will it take to see results?

The lessons will help you get results and start building up good habits immediately.

In fact, the very first tip will help you instantly end the "Death Grip", meaning your fingers will be less sore right away.

In terms of big results, I ask students to practice these methods for 20 minutes per day, 5-7 days per week. If you do that, within one week you'll see a noticeable difference in all your playing, and over the coming 2-3 months, you'll feel like a new guitarist.

Remember, though, you have to use the lessons to make the progress you desire. 

Who is this course for?

Although this course is for all guitarists, my steady, step-by-step approach really resonates with those who are aged 40+.

We focus on beautiful fingerpicking music and how to play styles such as 60s folk, classic pop, Travis picking, acoustic rock, and many other wonderful fingerpicking styles.

If you are learning a little later on in life, and want a confidence-building clear and concise method, this is for you.
