Watermelon Sugar Chords: Learn the progressions


Watermelon Sugar guitar lesson + TAB

Built around a four-chord progression loop of the diatonic chord progression II – VI – I – V in the key of C, it’s the order of the chords that make us want to keep hearing it loop.

Starting on chord II, and finishing on chord V means that we never feel settled, like this:

||: Dm (II) | Am (VI) | C (I) | G (V) :||

To see if you are session player material, try to memorize the arrangement, nailing those stops is not easy as it’s so repetitive!

To find out more about what makes this a hit, and get a chart with arrangement details (so you don’t have to memorize it), check out the full lesson here: Watermelon Sugar – Guitar Lesson with TAB.



Watermelon Sugar is one of Harry Styles’s best tunes!

Harry Styles (formerly of the boy band One Direction) released Watermelon Sugar as a single from his second album, Fine Line (2019).

With combined sales of over 10 million, it was the best-performing track from the album and a far cry from the teenage bubble gum stuff One Direction churned out.

Before Watermelon Sugar, Harry actually had some other decent tunes, starting out with his debut single Sign of The Times (2017), not to be confused with the Prince hit!

Adore You (2020) from the same album as Watermelon Sugar isn’t too bad either.

Harry’s last big tune came in 2022 on his latest album Harry’s House and was called As It Was. It sounds a bit like The Weeknd who sounds a bit like A-ha.

So perhaps this is not groundbreaking stuff but it’s definitely better than One Direction!
