Mustang

“Mustang” was first released on a 4- song EP (Extended Play) record by the Shadows in 1961 that also included the “Theme From Shane”, the “Theme From Giant”. and a drum solo titled “Shotgun”.

Written by Jerry Lordan — who also penned the classic guitar instrumental “Apache” and a number of other Shadows hits — it shows the fascination that the British had with the “wild west” aspect of the USA.

My arrangement is based on the original but has several differences. In my opinion the drum part of the original is more military in feel than evocative of horses; my drum part is more equestrian. I also adjusted the form to what I feel is a more interesting sequence of sections.
