Born in Farmersville, Texas, in 1921, and raised in the suburbs of Dallas, Herb Ellis first heard the electric guitar performed by George Barnes on a radio program. This experience is said to have inspired him to take up the instrument. He became proficient by the time he entered North Texas State University, where he majored in music - but because they did not yet have a guitar program, he studied the string bass. Unfortunately, due to lack of funds, his college days were short-lived, and in 1941 Ellis dropped out and toured for six months with a band from the University of Kansas.
