judewaddlejudewaddle replied on August 1st, 2010

dont think hes using a wammy

j clinej cline replied on September 28th, 2010

He is definitely using the whammy, you can see it in the full view on the lower right. Just watch what he does and copy it.

ihasbenihasben replied on June 12th, 2010

It could just be a play by feel kind of thing. Neither of my guitars have bars so I usually just do a pinch harmonic somewhere near the target note and vibrato it.

sanctumzerosanctumzero replied on May 19th, 2010

Okay, I haven't actually tried playing it 8D

sanctumzerosanctumzero replied on May 19th, 2010

Funny seeing how both of his songs are rated 2 out of 5 in difficulty ;D he must evidently consider them very easy to play. Would love to see an example of a song he thinks is difficult to perform :D

About Flattus Maximus View Full Biography Flattus Maximus (Cory Smoot) was the guitarist for the heavy metal band Gwar. Tragically, on November 3rd, 2011...Cory passed away due to a heart condition. He was an absolute pleasure to work with as a part of GWAR. It was an honor and a pleasure to know and hang out with him out of costume as Cory Smoot. RIP buddy. You'll be continued to be loved and missed.

Cory was known by his red face, white dreadlocks, dinosaur-head shoulder pads and reptile feet. The name "Flattus" implies (verified by various concerts) a flatulent character. His speaking mannerisms suggest a childlike intelligence and naivety (until recently; his entries in the current website's blog depict a different, more violent Flattus).

Cory's lessons are taught in full costume. He teaches 4 Gwar songs. Beware..this guy has a ferocious right hand so make sure you have your metal chops up to par before attempting his lessons.

"I feel like a 12 year old kid with a new guitar!"

I am 66 years young and I still got it! I would have never known this if it had not been for Jamplay! I feel like a 12 year old kid with a new guitar! Ha! I cannot express enough how great you're website is! It is for beginners and advanced pickers! I am an advanced picker and thought I had lost it but thanks to you all, I found it again! Even though I only play by ear, I have been a member a whopping whole two weeks now and have already got Brent's country shuffle and country blues down and of course with embellishments. Thank you all for your wonderful program!

"With Jamplay I can fit in a random session when I have time and I can go at my own pace"

I'm a fifty eight year old newbie who owns a guitar which has been sitting untouched in a corner for about seven years now. Last weekend I got inspired to pick it up and finally learn how to play after watching an amazing Spanish guitarist on TV. So, here I am. I'm starting at the beginning with Steve Eulberg and I couldn't be happier (except for the sore fingers :) Some day I'm going to play like Steve! I'm self employed with a hectic schedule. With Jamplay I can fit in a random session when I have time and I can go at my own pace, rewinding and replaying the videos until I get it. This is a very enjoyable diversion from my work yet I still feel like I'm accomplishing something worthwhile. Thanks a lot, Greg
