Love it. Awesome chord progressions and licks. Don't listen to the detractors, Flattus... you don't need me to tell you that. I had fun watching and it'll be quite a while until I can be anywhere near this capable.

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
