I've loved this song for a long time, so you can imagine how happy I was when I was hired as the cellist of the quartet-in-residence for Aerosmith's Deuces Are Wild Las Vegas residency - getting to perform this song every night with the band themselves is an amazing experience! And as if that's not fun enough: during the second run of the show, our quartet was requested by production management to personally serenade Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, and the rest of the boys from Boston as they headed out to their cars after the show. (Steven had found out that Paul McCartney's band does that for him, so naturally Steven wanted the same royal treatment!) We wanted to rock out to one of Aerosmith's own songs, so I wrote up this arrangement of "Dream On" to play for the band and they loved it - Steven Tyler and Tom Hamilton both featured clips of our performance on their personal Instagram pages, which now have a total of about 400,000 views. Not only was that a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but now I get to say I have the only string arrangement of "Dream On" personally approved by Steven Tyler himself - I hope you like it too! :) This chart is rated advanced-intermediate for a handful of kinda-tricky solo licks and some occasional weird rhythms, but it will definitely be easily sightreadable for professionals and learnable for students. It is about 4:00 in duration.
