a new awareness . . .


. . . a new awareness

a story about The 100th Monkey and Guitar Revelations™


The Japanese monkey, Macaca fuscata, had been observed in the wild for a period of

over 30 years. In 1952, on the island of Koshima , scientists were providing monkeys

with sweet potatoes dropped in the sand. The monkeys liked the taste of the raw sweet

potatoes, but they found the dirt unpleasant. An 18-month-old female named Imo found

she could solve the problem by washing the potatoes in a nearby stream. She taught

this trick to her mother. Her playmates also learned this new way and they taught their

mothers too.


This cultural innovation was gradually picked up by various monkeys before the eyes

of the scientists. Between 1952 and 1958 all the young monkeys learned to wash the

sandy sweet potatoes to make them more palatable. Only the adults who imitated their

children learned this social improvement. Other adults kept eating the dirty sweet potatoes.


Then something startling took place. In the autumn of 1958, a certain number of

Koshimam monkeys were washing sweet potatoes -- the exact number is not known.

Let us suppose that when the sun rose one morning there were 99 monkeys on

Koshima Island who had learned to wash their sweet potatoes. Let's further suppose

that later that morning, the hundredth monkey learned to wash potatoes.


THEN IT HAPPENED! By that evening almost everyone in the tribe was washing sweet

potatoes before eating them. The added energy of this hundredth monkey somehow

created an ideological breakthrough!


But notice: A most surprising thing observed by these scientists was that the habit of

washing sweet potatoes then jumped over the sea...Colonies of monkeys on other

islands and the mainland troop of monkeys at Takasakiyama began washing their

sweet potatoes. Thus, when a certain critical number achieves an awareness, this new

awareness may be communicated from mind to mind.


Although the exact number may vary, this Hundredth Monkey Phenomenon means

that when only a limited number of people know of a new way, it may remain the

conscious property of these people. But there is a point at which if only one more person tunes-in to a new awareness, a field is strengthened so that this awareness is picked up by almost everyone!


Guitar Revelations ™ _Advanced guitar playing made easy_ or simply, the way to go to play all contemporary scales, (covering just about 99% of today's music), with virtually zero academics. That means this is a no-brainer it's too easy to use. Because guitar is a stringed instrument there are intrinsic, or built-in, shortcuts. We all have been aware of a few of them, but until now the complete set has never been published in such a simple way.


As guitar players we want to play not study or else we'd be guitar studiers!


An easy way out? YES it's OK, there is one. The revolutionary G-Rev ™ Guitar method .

Guitar players have already been utilizing this technique in part, not fully enjoying all of the benefits.

Now you can have the complete picture. Of course it's not what you know, but what you do with what you know that counts. Having all the scales without needing to retrain your fingers, plus the accompanying chord progressions on hand is a definite bonus for the creative guitarist.


There are very technical explanations for why Guitar Revelations™ works, for example like

“modal interchange”, “ reharmonization” or “pitch axis” and there's a lot of music theory that goes with them (yawn). But the bottom line is play first, ask questions later. You don't have to be an electronic engineer to know why the light turns on when you flick the switch, but never the less, the room is still illuminated! The work has already been done for you; all you have to do is play, be creative, explore, or simply run up and down the scales root to octave, octave to root over the associated chord progression and presto, we're making music.

Once you hear the identities of the scales, as a musician, you'll instinctively know where to use them.

If you're creative, want to stand out from the norm or are simply a song writer looking for new and fertile grounds then Guitar Revelations™ is for you. Guitar Revelations™ is pure knowledge, no filler, with quick start applications . Thanks to the Morphin' Modal Modulator ™ at any instant you can morph up to fourteen scales. Expressing yourself with an increased musical vocabulary.


Here is a list of all 14 derivations of the Major scale. Yes, you could learn them in many different ways, perhaps you already learned some of them with dedicated single purpose finger patterns.

Using Guitar Revelations ™ and the included Modal Modulator ™ , you can automatically

transform a simple pentatonic minor scale, instantly, into all 14 scales,

while staying on the same root, and for all 12 keys! (That's 168 scales in all!!)

Empowering options and no new finger patterns to learn, just Guitar Revelations ™.

Based on the pentatonic minor or Blues scale, this is accessible even if you're a beginner but even the advanced players will instantly benefit with a fresh, instant way to play all the scales and with a

new perspective. Old Licks become like new, applying the G-Rev Modulators to old fingerpatterns.

If you want to Jam now ask questions later or are just ready to Jam right now, Rev it up with G-Rev™ Don't wait for "The Hundredth Monkey", get a head start and get G-Rev ™ before it becomes common knowledge, it's just way too easy. “When only a limited number of people know of a new way, it may remain the conscious property of these people . . . but there is a point at which if only one more person tunes-in to a new awareness, a field is strengthened so that this awareness is picked up by almost everyone!” Don't be left behind, for $19.99  There's a new tune just waiting to be played.
