Let me just take a quick moment to say, well done, you did it!

You have just made a great decision in terms of your guitar playing...

The Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy will help your guitar playing in so many ways

All you have to do is...

Follow the step-by-step instructions inside and practise the lessons you will uncover for 10-30 minutes per day (more if possible for faster results).

If you do this, you will learn guitar the proper way and make fantastic progress.

...Just like the many beginner students who all stepped into my teaching studio over the last 12+ years.

Most of whom have gone on to become highly skilled guitarists. 

This means you will learn guitar with a clear plan, you will learn good technique, you will play real songs, and gain confidence on guitar...

No matter if you're brand new to the instrument or if you've tried to learn for years or decades. 

And with this confidence, you'll be able to run up and down the fretboard with ease...

Enjoy every moment of your playing, and...

Impress yourself and your loved ones.

Speaking of which...

Would you like to make even more progress?

Now, I know you probably do NOT want to play on stage in front of 1000s.

If you're like me, you no doubt just want to pick up the guitar at the end of the day and play the music you love - for yourself.

...And if you follow the Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy, you will be able to do this.

You see, 9/10 students are having big success with it...

...BUT every now and then, some students join, make lots of progress, but fall back into old habits.

It’s like when someone hires a personal trainer.

They often shed a tonne of weight, then they STOP seeing the personal trainer and the weight goes straight back on. 

...That usually means frustration and the guitar possibly ending up in the attic gathering dust. 

...But what if we can ensure you make progress and NEVER slip back into old habits?

After teaching over 120+ students in person and 1000s more around the world...

I've found there are four essentials 99% of my students need and love to be able to do.

These are having:

  • Fast chord changes that will improve all your songs
  • The ability to play barre chords at ease and with ZERO pain
  • Jamming the blues with a variety of rhythms, riffs, and licks
  • Being able to play a stunning repertoire of songs

These are the four things that ALL of my most successful students have learnt to do over the years. 

...And I've found they are key to you being able to stick with the guitar...

Have hours of fun for yourself every day, and maybe even leave your family and friends in awe when they hear you play!

So I've created four game-changing courses on these exact subjects. 

If the Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy is the map helping you on your journey... 

These four courses are like the high-powered performance sports car driving you there faster.

...And because life can get in the way, I wanted to give you the option to get these special lessons to help ensure a LONG-TERM transformation for you...

On this page, you can get these four "pillar" courses today at a discount price with lifetime access - even if you don't continue on from your 14-day Academy trial.

I call it the "Fast Track" bundle because that's exactly what it is...

Inside this special bundle, you'll discover the most impressive guitar techniques that will make playing guitar an absolute joy for you - for many, many years to come.

Some of these are standalone courses and some of the songs and blues lessons are taken from the very best previous monthly lessons I've created.

Yet, today you can have them all and you'll...

Get Possibly The Biggest Breakthrough You've Ever Had On The Guitar

...Here's what's inside these game-changing courses...

Fast Track Bundle Course #1... 

Ninja Chord Changes

Rapidly Transform, Improve, And Speed Up Your Chord Changes Once And For All

Regular Price $97

Struggle to play songs smoothly? Are slow chord changes killing your progress?

If so, now you can finally master the "dark art" of chord changes once and for all. You won't find the lessons here taught anywhere else.

Discover the unusual but simple lessons inside, including:

  • How to fix The 7 Deadly Sins of Chord Changes which most people have no idea they are committing!
  • How strange yet simple techniques such as the "Pivot" method, "Air Changes", and "Chord Anchors" will rapidly speed up your chord changes. 
  • Why the 'Three Ps' is the secret to unlocking faster chord changes without soreness, pain, or frustration.
  • Get all this in a step-by-step course based on what pros such as Paul Simon, Eric Clapton, and Cat Stevens all do to make their songs sound highly musical... instantly.

Join 1000s who have used this course to make rapid progress and ensure no song or slow chord change trips you up - ever again. 

"I'll get right to the point... I have struggled with chord changes for years. This course though is fun to practice and you will get results. You will learn more in this course for less than you would spend for a professional lesson or two. Very well taught, easy to understand and highly recommended!"

 - Larry Arsenault

Fast Track Bundle Course #2... 

The Ultimate Guide to Barre Chords

Discover the simple secrets to playing barre chords without pain, frustration or hours of toiling away!

Regular Price $220

Mastering barre chords is NOT about pressure, power, or even perseverance.

Most people get this backwards, which causes pain, soreness, and even injury. The good news is, anyone can play barre chords comfortably - even if their fingers are short, stubby or arthritic.

It's about the right techniques and in this course, you'll discover:

  • An unusual system for how to master barre chords in a shorter space of time.
  • How to play the four key barre shapes, giving you 48 new and "movable" chords you can use in 1000s of classic songs.
  • The "4 Golden Rules" of learning barre chords (break these rules at your peril).
  • The "Anti-tension" exercises to instantly reduce pain, the "bouncing" technique to end fatigue, and the strange "Crooked Finger" technique to use for a "cheat" barre!
  • Plus, why "reverse barre chords" are the hidden key to smooth changes and clear notes every time you attempt a barre! 

Barre chords take practice, but this detailed step-by-step course contains the exact roadmap and the exact lessons you need to play them properly.

"I began with the F chord 4 months ago, but within a week of doing this course, I now need less than half the pressure needed to make it sound clear. I can't believe it. Working with your course gives me great pleasure!"

- Brigit Denker

Fast Track Bundle Course #3... 

The QuickStart Blues Collection

How to play stunning blues guitar that anyone can learn and that will give you hours of endless fun

Regular Price $171

Most of my students love to play the blues...

Even if they never listen to it. Why?

Simply because the blues is fun to play, easier than you think to learn, and instantly recognisable. The guitar is perfect for the blues and so many blues techniques crossover to other styles!

Now you can transport yourself back in time to the legendary smoky blues clubs and play this stunning style of music. This course is where I take some of the very best standalone lessons I previously released and put them together. In this course, you'll discover:

  • The key fundamentals of the blues which are the backbone of 1000s of classic pop and rock songs.
  • How to play stunning lead blues guitar using a four-note scale that you can learn in seconds.
  • The secrets to playing in the styles of legends such as B.B. King, Mississippi John Hurt, Eric Clapton, and many more.
  • Why learning the blues should be essential for all guitarists and how it will help all your guitar playing even if you only play folk, pop, rock, or country.
  • Plus, play the blues styles of Delta, Mississippi, Chicago, and more, all without having to hunt around on YouTube for hours on end.

Everyone instantly recognises the blues. The blues is like an onion as there are always more layers to peel. This means it's almost impossible to get bored of playing this style and that means endless guitar-playing fun... forever. 

"The 12-Bar Blues shuffle really moves my soul…eagerly awaiting next lesson. Love this technique, just like the old blues men." - Mark

"This is SO MUCH FUN – I have this going through my head all day – SO MUCH fun to play!!!" - Logan

Fast Track Bundle Course #4... 

The Most Stunning Songs Collection

How to play 10 wonderful songs that anyone can learn to give you confidence and stun any audience

RRP $211

I always say learning five songs is the first big goal everyone should aim to achieve.

Well, here you have ten stunning classics to choose from - all taught in a super simple way. You'll learn the stunning melodies, how to fingerpick these songs, strum them, and jam them in a super impressive (yet simple to learn) solo fingerstyle manner. 

In short, this course will save you 100s of hours browsing around YouTube looking for good songs to learn. 

I've already road-tested these songs and arrangements with countless students over the years, so you can quickly play some of the most beautiful songs of all time.

Here's just a handful of the stunning songs you will learn in HD video and with complete TAB and notation:

  • Amazing Grace
  • Scarborough Fair
  • Whiskey in the Jar
  • Wayfaring Stranger
  • House of the Rising Sun

...And more classic and incredibly popular songs.

"This is so lovely. Really going to enjoy this one. Well done Dan another fab lesson." - Angela

"Can’t tell you how excited I am about learning this song Dan!!! Thanks again for all you do for us late guitar bloomers… you have no idea the joy it brings to have someone like you who is dedicated to teaching us old farts!!!" - L. Smith

Today, you can get all four of these courses in this unique bundle at a discounted price.

You might wonder if you need these courses now you have joined the Academy.

The truth is, inside the Academy we cover a wide variety of things but these four courses go into more detail on these four specific areas of playing guitar... so if you want a deep dive on chord changes, blues, playing more songs, and barre chords, this is for you.

And just so you know...

There is NO catch!

Just a simple one-time payment

It's a simple one-off payment, and it comes with...

My 100% Money-Back Guarantee you will love it

I'm not offering a least not in the "traditional" sense. 

I don't believe in them.

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.

...But today you can start to realise your guitar dreams and it can happen now.

So if you want to play the blues like a pro...

Jam barre chords as smoothly as a seasoned player...

Change chords with ease...

...And learn some of the most stunning songs ever…

Then these four courses will give you this.

Each course reveals lessons that are not taught anywhere else out there.

When I have sold these courses separately, they would cost you $699.

...but today on this page only, you can get them with lifetime access for just $345.


Simply because I want to guarantee your current and future progress.

So if this sounds like something you want, don't hesitate because this offer is not available anywhere else...
