Apache

The instrumental “Apache” was first released in 1960. It was written by Jerry Lordan — who was British. The first group to release a recording of it was The Shadows. In the UK, this is the best known version.

In the USA, the version we know the best is the one by Danish guitarist Jørgen Ingmann. Like many other guitar instrumentals of the time, many people in the USA incorrectly assume it was The Ventures. They did record it, but their version did not chart.

My version is not a literal cover of any of the originals, but probably owes the most to the Shadows.
