Sully endorsee Dee J Nelson was recently interviewed by Guitar World blogger James Wood. He discusses how he got started, his album It's Alive!, working with Doug Marks and what he's currently up to.
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.”

DJ's new DVD is a "must have" for beginners & intermediates
This is the DVD of DJ's popular book and software download, Monster Power Chords. If you're a beginner or intermediate guitarist, buy this program, it's killer. There's a great video demonstration on the catalog page but it doesn't quite do this DVD justice. I find it difficult to explain just how much stuff DJ has crammed into this program. The course includes the complete original Monster Power Chords book in PDF format. We were selling the book alone for $12.95. The program includes drum tracks to help your timing. It also includes complete backing tracks to jam with. There are scale charts to help with lead improvisation, 46 exercises, guitar tab, and Guitar-Pro files, and above all DJ is a really good instructor. This program is over an hour in length. This is the perfect holiday gift to give or receive. Check it out:DJ Nelson's Monster Power Chords
