Lesson notes

Dude Looks Like A Lady was a huge hit single from Aerosmith's album "Permanent Vacation" released in 1987. This one always reminds me of the movie Mrs. Doubtfire since it's featured in the movie, and because of that I spent a lot of time learning this song and really getting it down. This song also uses a lot of cool and unique ways of playing power chords, placing them on the upper strings instead of the lower to emphasize the chord hits. The solo licks involve a lot of string skipping and pull-offs, so it helps if you have a really efficient right hand or already have a grasp on hybrid picking. Aside from that, this should be a relatively simple song to get under your fingers, so lets get going!
