"Bad Reputation"
Joan Jett and The Blackhearts


The few tabs I've seen of this song don't seem to have the transition down
around the "a girl can do what she wants to do..." part. This is what I
picked up watching an old youtube of Joan playing it. All of my counting
is based on rough estimates, if you listen to the song while you're playing,
you'll pick up on the more exact rhythms.

Any corrections are welcome!
