In this song tutorial, I'm going to show you how to play the guitar parts heard in "Headstrong" as made famous by Trapt. This track is considered by many to be one of the biggest rock songs of the past decade, and features a wealth of great guitar parts and tones.

The guitars heard in the song sound great with a dual humbucker style guitar, and you will need a nice heavy distortion along with a clean tone with some delay.

If you watch live videos of the band, you notice that the guitarist is using a 7 string guitar. For this tutorial, I'm going to show you how to play the song using your 6 string with our strings tuned down a whole step to Dropped C. This makes your guitars tuning C, G, C, F, A, D.

Once you're in tune, you're ready to rock!
