I DON'T NEED NO DOCTOR -- JOHN MAYER, "Where The Light Is" (2007)
Exact chords tabbed by ClassicalfreaK

This is a toughie! I am not a crazy-good tabber in terms of what voicings work
best for melodies, but I have the main riff's notes exact. If someone suggests
a more reasonable riff tab I would gladly accept it! I am absolutely providing
a chord diagram for this one, due to the insane chords he uses.

 **The beat used in the tabs looks like X-o-X-o-. Capital X's are the primary beat
   (quarter notes, the ones you tap your foot to), lowercase x's are half-beats
   (eighth notes, twice as fast as your foot) and the dashes in between are for
   the swung sixteenth feel of the song. If there is space in between -s, that's for
   the intro riff's trill on the fourth beat, the song doesn't slow down!**
 **The "chord - - - " format is used to show what beats to switch chords on
  (only when not on tab)**

CHORD DIAGRAM:
E7      020100
    OR  022130
G       320003
    OR  3x0003 ("open fifth" voicing)
A       x02220
C#m7b5  x42000 (easiest, good voicing)
    OR  x4545x (might be easier to transition to Dm9)
Dm9     x5355x
CM7     x32000
Am7     x02010
Bm7     x24232
F#m/B   x24222
Em/A    x02000
Gm7     353333
    OR  3x3333
n/c     Play nothing! "n/c" means "no chord"

Best of luck to you! John definitely didn't make this an easy track.
