This article shall show you how to play the Fat Old Sun chords on your guitar along to the Pink Floyd oldie. Well, it is actually a folk song but has been transformed into more of a rock-blues type in modern days. The transformation from folk to blues-rock is also made within the song which increases enjoyment and entertainment. The song is performed a lot by David Gilmour in his more modern concerts.

This song can be played with an acoustic to start off with the strumming and then an electric guitar for the solo part at the end.

I shall refer to the string names starting from the top of the guitar in order starting from the thickest string down to the thinnest: EADGBE.

So without further ado, pick up that guitar and let’s get started…

Summer’s thunder time of year,

GD
By the river holding hands,

C Bm
And if you sit, don’t make a sound.

Am G
Pick your feet up off the ground.

C Bm
And if you hear as the warm night falls

Am Dm
The silver sound from a time so strange,

Gm
Sing to me,

Dm F D
Sing to me.

When that fat old sun in the sky is falling,

Summer evening birds are calling.

Children’s laughter in my ears,

The last sunlight disappears.

And if you sit, don’t make a sound.

Pick your feet up off the ground.

C Bm
And if you hear as the warm night falls

Sing to me,

Dm F
Sing to me.

When that fat old sun…

I hope you enjoyed playing and learning the Fat Old Sun chords to the song. Make sure you play the chords slowly and accurately at first especially the barre chords. These chords usually gives a lot of strain on your fingers if you are not used to playing these sort of chords.

To make this even more fun and interesting why not get hold of the backing track for this song to play against. I have done this and it is so much fun. It gives you a great buzz!
