TJ Helmerich: what I've been up to lately

Hello Friends...
Been a while since I've posted anything... though I do check on here at least once a week. (for inspiration)
Have been musically quite the last couple years, not out of the loop by any means. Just kinda got bored with what I was doing musically, and decided to try and re-invent myself a bit. I'm sure you all know what I'm talking about and have done so in one for or another quite a few times in your career, be it music or not.
Still teaching and engineering amazing students/players as usual, but in the woodshed as for as making music or playing any gigs. Soon though, as I'm starting to jam with the crickets at my studio... and realizing they have better time than I.

That bugs me.

Anyways.... thank you for your patience and I hope the break will provide something new and interesting for those listening.

My best to all, especially you.

Truth In Shredding: 8000 subscribers on YouTube

YouTube Channel
I seems like forever to get to 8000 subscribers But I thanks each and everyone one of you because each of you, in your own way, is helping an unknown guitar player somewhere in the world. After all it is what Truth In Shredding is all about, helping the little guy (or gal), the underdog to get noticed. I think it's about great music too.

I've always grown the channel organically, relied on people to share the youtube channel, so thank you to those who have done that too.

Elizabeth Schall: Dreaming Dead @ The Whiskey A Go-Go 03-08-14 - Jack Lue Series

Elizabeth Schall is a female American singer, songwriter and guitarist, and founder of the death metal band Dreaming Dead. Prior to that, she was a guitarist of the all-female tribute band The Iron Maidens and the death metal band Winterthrall.

Dreaming Dead:

Elizabeth Schall first came into the music scene when she was recruited to join the death metal band Winterthrall in 2003. She departed from the band two years later.[1]

Schall joined The Iron Maidens on September 2005 following the departure of guitarist/co-founder Josephine Draven, taking the stage name of "Adrianne Smith" (a female version of Adrian Smith).[2]

Shortly before she left from the Maidens in October 2006, Schall formed the death metal band Manslaughter with drummer Mike Caffell. They recorded one EP before recruiting guitarist Manuel Villareal and bassist William Toledo. Following a brief tour, Villareal and Toledo left the band. Once again as a duo, Schall and Caffell recorded their first album Within One, then renamed the band Dreaming Dead and recruited bassist Juan Ramirez.

On September 30, 2008, Ibex Moon Records announced they have signed a record deal with Dreaming Dead. Within One was released on CD on January 20, 2009.[3] As the band focused on writing and performing as a trio of Schall, Caffell and Ramirez.

Schall rejoined the Maidens on June 2010 in a guest appearance as "Deena Murray".[4]

Schall cites Peter Tägtgren and Jeff Loomis among her influences, as well as Cryptopsy, Metallica, Megadeth and Slayer.[5]
