Much of the classical acoustic guitar repertoire is in E minor, as this is a very characteristic key for the instrument. With the standard tuning, four of the instrument's six strings open are part of the tonic chord. The key is also extremely popular in heavy metal music, as it allows extended use of the lowest note on a standard-tuned guitar, E.

E minor chord was one of the most-often used keys by Felix Mendelssohn.
