       Try Some, Buy Some – George Harrison
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

George Harrison
Try Some, Buy Some (1973)
(Harrison)

From: "Living In The Material World"

Very tough ... The bass does so many interesting things here, which makes 
the song extremely hard to reproduce alone on an acoustic. I chose to omit 
the bass from the [Bridge] for the sake of playability but included the 
full version at the end of this chord sheet. 

Another weird part is what I called [Build up] here. I counted it out: it 
consists of 33 beats, but I’m not sure of the time signature. I finally
opted for 11 bars in 3/4 time. Any ideas that may be more intuitive?

If you want to hear what this chord sheet sounds like, check out my simple
instrumental demo here: https://soundcloud.com/maguri/try-some-buy-some-demo

Suggestions and comments are highly welcome!
