This is an approximate transcription of the guitar part played by Hugh Laurie in the live version of "You
Don't Know My Mind" as played in the official video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K-mIoVtaj-M
It's the result of much finger watching across several live videos. I hope it's close enough.
This song has a 12 bar blues structure with a few little tweaks.
In verses 1 to 4 the chords are timed like this:
  | C / C7 / | C / C7 / | C / C7 / | C / C7 / |
  | C7 / F7 / | F7 / / / | C / C7 / | C / C7 / |
  | G7 / / / | G7 / / / | C / C7 / | C / C7 / |
Note that the F7 chord comes in half way through bar 5, not at the start of the bar.
In verses 5 to 7 the situation is a little different in that bar 5 has 6 beats - the bar once again starts
with two beats of C7, but then there are four beats of F7, like this:
  | C / C7 / | C / C7 / | C / C7 / | C / C7 / |
  | C7 / F7 / / / | F7 / / / | C / C7 / | C / C7 / |
  | G7 / / / | G7 / / / | C / C7 / | C / C7 / |
In the instrumental the F7 reverts to beat one of a four beat bar 5, like this:
  | C / C7 / | C / C7 / | C / C7 / | C / C7 / |
  | F7 / / / | F7 / / / | C / C7 / | C / C7 / |
  | G7 / / / | G7 / / / | C / C7 / | C / C7 / |
Unlike in versions of the song by some other artists, the G7 chord in bar 9 doesn't ever change to F7 in bar
10. Instead the G7 runs runs right through to the end of bar 10.
I'm not sure I hear a C7 following every C chord, especially in bar 1, so it may be worth experimenting with
leaving out some C7 chords. Another thing to try when changing from C to C7 is to pull back the change from
beat 3 to the "and" of beat 2.

[Chords]
C    : x32010 or 3x2010
C7   : 3x2310
F7   : 131211
