Just want to give you a quick heads-up, today is the last chance to get the new Dan Thorpe Acoustic Academy lessons.
If you like the blues, you will love these new lessons.
In fact, if you want to have a listen to the new blues tutorial, you can check it out below:
In terms of the new lessons in the Academy, here’s just a snippet of what you will learn:
A fun 12-bar blues song I created called “Neon City Blues” – it’s all played using my “No Chord Fingerstyle” method and classic blues licks and open bass strings. This means it’s simple to play and literally anyone can learn it with a little practice.
This simple blues piece will teach you how to combine rhythm and lead guitar at the same time. It will help you understand the 12-bar blues structure, you can loop it over and over, tweak it over time, and it sounds great on electric and acoustic too.
Why simple repeating parts are often far more important (and easier) than learning a gazillion different blues licks. In fact, I’ll show you how ‘feel’ and simple licks are infinitely better than just learning lick after lick which, if you’re like me, you may never use.
Plus, you’ll get the other new lessons on the new ‘10x Method’, which will make learning anything easier and far less frustrating. It’s a simple lesson that uses the techniques my most successful students have applied over the years to make faster progress.
“Countdown Strumming” – this is a simple and fun way to help you speed up your chords, improve your timing, and get more strumming confidence (and it can easily be adapted to help any other chord change you are struggling with too).
…And you’ll also get my “Sub-division” lesson. This is one of the secrets to being able to play with super-tight rhythm skills. Drummers practise them lots, but now I’ve adapted the exercise for the guitar in a super simple way.
If you want these lessons, you’ll need to join by midnight tonight, Pacific time.
You can find out more below and listen to a snippet of the new blues tune.
I hope you have a great month of October and it’s a wonderful one for your playing.
P.S. This is what the other students are saying so far about the new lessons…
“I love this little piece! This is exactly what I was looking for after playing around with last month’s lesson – but you knew that! Thanks for this and feel free to add more blues lessons in the future – they are so much fun!” – Teresa
“I am enjoying this lesson. I’ve been using the 10x method to learn this and have found it very helpful. I’m up to the 8th bar. I’m using a pic and this is really helping me with my picking accuracy. Looking forward to learning the rest of this.” – Art
“Awesome piece Dan – looks like it will surely be a fun tune to learn!! I especially love how the base notes sound… Cheers” – Logan
“Thanks, Dan! I so appreciate how you respond to the requests for material from your students. I can’t tell you how fortunate I feel to have found you and DTAA. My wife hadn’t heard me play for a while and when she watched some short videos I had made, she remarked “you’ve come a long way”. I told her “That’s down to Dan”. – Larry
Those comments are just the tip of the iceberg.
I’m blessed to have such great members who are passionate about the guitar.
If you want to join us all and have a tonne of fun, not just with the blues, but all your playing, here is the last chance to get started right away…
