Watch the Grady Leads in E online guitar lesson by Walter Broes from Rock, Billy, & Boogie Guidebook

E is a popular guitar key because you get all the open strings to play with, and rockabilly, being extremely guitar-oriented music, has a wealth of recorded material in the key of E.

Grady Martin had his own unique approach to open strings, and doesn't just start licks on them but uses them almost as a drone when moving little riffs around. Twangy open string riffs on the low strings are something he had in common with Duane Eddy, it’s almost impossible to say today who influenced who, or if there was just some synchronicity in the air and licks like these were going to materialize no matter what!
