That's one of the keys to becoming a complete player. I kind of wish bluegrass guitar flatpickers had learned "G run " type licks in every key back in the old days. For example, I kind of think it's a little odd to capo for the key of A on a guitar, because there are still open chords for the I, IV and V in A on an open guitar, and there are cool licks and standard bg type stuff one can do in open A. Even the G run lays pretty decent in A.
