once knew.



(All other chords play as A and E form barres)

G A

Floating down the sound resounds around the icey waters underground

E Eb

Jupiter and Saturn, Oberon, Miranda, and Titania

G G#

Neptune, Titan, stars can frighten



(play following chords as E form barres falling from fret 12)

E Eb D C# C B Bb A

Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah

(and again as A form barres falling from 12)

Follow same progression as verses.

Screw around with whatever pentatonic you happen to be in.

Throw in some typical space-rock, spanish, or modal scale

if you feel up to it. Use gobs of delay, throw in a lot

of tremolo picking, and a few sliding harmonies, take lots

of acid, go insane, play a C chord throughout the whole song,

get booted out of Pink Floyd and POW!

you have yourself a reasonable Syd Barrett imitation. :)

Repeat chord sequence twice and go into second verse.



Second verse :

(Same progression)

Blinding signs flap (???)

Flicker flicker flicker flam

Pow Wow

Stairway scare Dan

Dare who's there (???)



(I don't understand these lyrics either...but Syd WAS on acid.. :) )

Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah

Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah



Then : (ritard)

E

Lime and limpid green the sound resounds the icey waters under

E

Lime and limpid green the sound resounds the icey waters underground.



The one on the B-Side of the Take It Back single off the Division Bell is

faster and the solos are more Gilmour-esque - more rigid in the timing, better

technique, less delay, etc.

The one on Ummagumma repeats the first verse and is a wee slower and more laid

back than the original.







Subject: Re: REQ: ASTRONOMY DOMINE by Pink Floyd



I've done the same about books where they only have a few chords

which aren't even right half the time. So, here is an incomplete, but

decent version of Astronomy Domine, most of it's there except for the

weird soloing throughout, you'll probably want to change it around to

suit your personal taste. This is sort of a cross between the

UmmaGumma and Piper at the Gates of Dawn versions, as both had

slightly different guitar parts.

The main chorus goes something like:

(play barre chords in sequence with 6th string bass note)

G G# A

Floating down the sound resounds around the icy waters underground

I doubt I got the words right, but you get the idea.



Someone else posted this solo a long time ago, forget who,

but it sounds good to me.
