In this tutorial we're going to look at the song "Headed For A Heartbreak" as made famous by Winger. This song features a lot of great elements both compositionally as well as technically that make it a valuable study.

We're going to cover the main rhythm guitar, the extra melodic guitar parts as well as the lead solos. The first lead solo is a standard 8 bar solo, and the outro features an extended 32 bar solo. One of the elements in the soloing is the use of tapping, so we'll dive into that.

This song is recorded at 67 BPM with a 4/4 time signature throughout.
