John Mayer "I Don't Need No Doctor"
"Where The Light Is" Version

Nobody has a spot-on tab so I decided to make my own. This should be 
at least 99.9% correct. T means to use your left thumb on the intro.
Also, check out who did you think I was version 4. It is also the "where the 
light is version." Please rate and leave comments :)

!!!UPDATE!!! I just finished tabbing the rest of the solo 
as of June 17, 2017. The song is finally complete!

I just posted Out of My Mind Where the light is
[Intro]

If you have a loop pedal and would like to loop the song, this is what the bass plays...

There's a lot of open strings here. He uses some sort of
pedal that sounds like a wah-wah, phasing, and a tube screamer pedal combined.

This is the part when the song slows down just a little. The next two
measures are played 4 and 1/2 times.

Instead of playing the last measure after playing repeating it 4 and 1/2 times, go straight
from the first measure to here when ready to end the song.

                                                      (Bend it slowly)

This is the outro. This is what he plays, but you can play your own riffs
or ending licks here.

Thanks! I'm sorry it took so long to finish. It was a fun song 
to learn, but was very hard.
