Side-by-Side Bar Chart combined with Line Chart

I love the current combination line & bar chart, but the bars are always stacked.  I've attached an image of the bars side-by-side.  I like this chart type because it allows me to compare and analyze 3 measures in one glance.  I can't do the same comparison when the bars are stacked.

Grouped bars with lines aren't a built-in option for Show Me, but they are possible in Tableau. Here's a KB article on Grouped Bars http://kb.tableausoftware.com/articles/knowledgebase/grouped-bar-chart and a longer piece on combining bars and lines: http://drawingwithnumbers.artisart.org/bars-and-lines/.
