Guitarist Dee J Nelson is making a name for himself.
The Chicago-based southpaw shredder, whose DVDs, Monster Power Chords and Lead Guitar DNA, have become hugely popular on Metal Method, has recently released It’s Alive, an album of guitar wizardry that will have players everywhere asking, “How’d he do that?”
Dee J credits some of his early influences to the Sex Pistols and Naked Ray Gun. But it wasn’t until he saw Steve Vai perform that everything changed.
“When I saw Vai play for the first time, that was it for me," Nelson said. “That’s when I knew I wanted to be a guitar player.”
