DJ Nelson Solo DVD on Metal Method

Monday, September 6th, 2010

Metal Method is the leader in media guitar lessons since 1982 and features founder Doug Marks and shredder Michael Angelo Batio. With the success of my book Monster Power Chords Doug has presented me with a great opportunity to do my own DVD series on lead guitar. I will be filming the first installment of this series this fall. The finished product should be ready to release sometime in October 2010. Keep checking Metal Method for updates!

The 1st installment takes an in-depth look at chord tones, arpeggios, and how to use them while playing lead guitar. This will take the average guitarist that regurgitates the same ol’ pentatonic riffs over and over to higher level of understanding and creativity.

I look forward to filming this with Doug at the end of this month and think it will be a top notch addition to the best rock guitar DVD insruction available.

New Free Lesson on the Guitar Crypt

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

I recently added new free lesson on the Guitar Crypt. 😆 It is a tapping exercise on the G string in the key of C Major. It outlines the Tonic (I) and Dominant (V) arpeggios to start and then visits the secondary dominant C7 (V7/IV) leading to the Subdominant (IV), changing in mode to (iv), and finally cadencing I-V-I. This is a great workout for the pinky and in understanding fundamental harmony linked as arpeggios.
