John Mayer - Try tab

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
			     Try - John Mayer
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Jaquito
Email: jaquito@gmail.com

Tuning: EADGBE (standard)

Chords:
C7

Intro:
                                   *see note here
    C7                          Am                 Bb
e|--8---8---8-----------------[-5--8-6-------------6-------------------------]
B|--8---8---8-----------------[-5------6-----------6-------------------------]
G|--9---9---9--------------8--[-5--------8-5--5----7--------------8----------]
D|--8---8---8--------8-10~~---[-7---------------7--8--------8-10~~-----------]
A|--x---x---x--10-10----------[-x------------------x--10-10------------------]
E|----8---8------------------5[-5------------------6----------------5--------]

*Note: At this point, John repeats the lick-Bb-lick-Am sequence several times over.
Ė donít return to C7! John doesnít actually play C7 again until Pino and Steve come in and
verse starts; he just keeps cycling back and forth between Am and Bb until then.

Chords:
John pretty much only uses barre chords or variants thereof throughout the whole song.

Verse:
C7                                                        Am
Takes four days to get to like me, and two to wanna leave
Bb                                                   Am
But the part that really gets me are all the moments in between
C7                                                  Am
Now I lie to get a little and laugh at every little thing
Bb                                                     Am
Sheís high on information, but now Iím low on self-esteem

Chorus:
             C7
So Iím gonna try (try!)
          Eb
Iím gonna try (try!)
      F                            Am
Gonna try to be myself although my self will wonder why
          C7
Iím gonna try (try!)
          Eb
Iím gonna try (try!)
      F                     Am
Gonna try to be myself this timeÖ


Verse:
C7                                  Am
Iím a hundred kinds of crazy, but I only wanna find
Bb                                 Am
One sweet little angel whoís gonna let me speak my mind
C7                              Am
But all I ever do these days is dumb my process down
Bb                                     Am
Sheís makiní her decision, but now Iím losiní all my ground

Chorus:
             C7
So Iím gonna try (try!)
          Eb
Iím gonna try (try!)
      F                            Am
Gonna try to be myself although my self will wonder why
          C7
Iím gonna try (try!)
          Eb
Iím gonna try (try!)
      F                     Am
Gonna try to be myself this timeÖ

Bridge:
C7                 Eb
Easy does it now Ė just keep your damn mouth shut
F                               Am
She thinks youíre hot already Ė donít go and press your luck
C7                            Eb
No news is good news cominí Ė you gotta wait to find
F                      Am
Donít go and blow it Ė you do every single time

===============================================================================


I absolutely love this song, and poked around the Internet looking for a tab that wasn't
inaccurate. It didn't take me long to discover that such a tab didn't exist, so I
to make my own; hopefully, it's close enough that you can learn to enjoy playing this 
as much as I do. This is only my third tab, so comments and constructive criticism are very
Enjoy! ~ Jaquito
