Old Guy Plays Apache

By now it should be apparent to my regular readers that I love the guitar instrumentals of the 1960’s. Apache, written by British pop composer Jerry Lordan, is one of the classics. Probably the best known version in the USA is that by Danish guitarist Jørgen Ingmann. It was also covered by the Ventures, and many people think the Ingmann version is the Ventures. The original recording was by the wonderful British instrumental Band, the Shadows — for whom the tune was written.

The guitar is my Nash J-63.
