                                            HEADSTRONG
                                       As recorded by Trapt
                                 (From the 2002 debut album TRAPT)

Chris Taylor Brown-Vocals
Simon Ormandy-Guitar
Peter Charell-Bass
David Stege-Drums

NOTE: IT IS PLAYED ON A 7-STRING GUITAR! If you have a bias opinion
on that statement, please feel free to refer to the music video on Youtube.

This is my own interpretation of the song, which, not to gloat, sounds pretty damn accurate.

I have also taken the courtesy of providing the note lengths:
W-Whole note
H-Half note
E-Eighth note
S-Sixteenth note
T-Thirty-second note
a-Grace Note
Note with a dote next to is represents an added half of its value to itself.
   (e.g.) E.=Dotted Eight note or an Eighth note tied to a sixteenth note.
A Note above no fret number represents a rest.
A plus symbol next to a note length is a tied note.
   (e.g.) Q    +E = Quarter note tied to an eight note.
Triplets are indicated with a 3 above the note lengths.
   (e.g.) |---3---| = Quarter note
           Q  Q  Q  = triplets
Lower case notes are staccato, or played and stopped immediately.
