Notes*:
     -Just strumming open chords will sound
     just fine singing and playing this tab
     is only in depth for those who wish to
     learn the song more in depth

     -Colbie's guitar player uses his fingers
     to pluck his strings rather than a pick
     (The finger picking pattern is on the bottom
     of the page)

     -It's odd but her guitar player also tunes
     the guitar down a half step and then puts a
     capo on the 2nd fret. (This is the same as 
     keeping your guitar in standard and putting
     a capo on the 1st fret).

     -In the Chorus and Pre-Chorus he hammers-on the 
     E on the 2nd fret of the D string with his ring
     finger on the offbeat after 1.

     -The actual chords (without a capo and without
     simplifying) are as follows:
       -Verse: Bbm9 - Gbsus2add#12 - DbM7 - Ab
       -Chorus: Bbm - Gbsus2 - Db - Ab/C
     the chords for the chart below are simplified
     so that it is easier to read. 

                              Pre-Chorus
                                  +

About the artist behind Try:

Colbie Marie Caillat (pronounced /ˈkoʊlbi kəˈleɪ/ (info) "Kole-bee Kal-lei") (born May 28, 1985 in Newbury Park, California) is an American pop singer-songwriter and guitarist from Malibu, California. Her father, Ken Caillat, co-produced Fleetwood Mac's Rumours and Tusk albums; Caillat recalls being around the likes of Mick Fleetwood and John McVie as a child.[1]

The popularity of Caillat's MySpace profile led her to become the number-one unsigned singer in her genre for four months.[2] Her popularity on the social network was partially due to her song "Bubbly," and the songs on her profile have been played more than forty-two million times (as of May 31st, 2008).[3] For the week of July 17, 2007, "Bubbly" was featured on the iTunes Store as the free "Single of the Week". The promotion coincided with the release of Coco, her debut studio album. Caillat was also spotlighted by Rhapsody during the 2007 Black Friday Sale at Best Buy.

According to her MySpace profile, Caillat was first inspired to start singing at age eleven when she first heard the Fugees' 1996 version of the song "Killing Me Softly", made famous by Roberta Flack in 1973. Her MySpace profile also states that, though trained at piano from an early age, Caillat did not begin playing guitar until age nineteen.

In May 2008, Caillat recorded a duet with Jason Mraz, called "Lucky," on his album, We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things.[4] The same month, Caillat recorded a cover of the song "Kiss the Girl" from The Little Mermaid for Disney's DisneyMania vol. 6 CD.[5]

Caillat is currently shooting another music video in Hawaii for her song "The Little Things."[6]
