About the Song
"Apache" is an instrumental written by Jerry Lordan. It has been recorded by many artists, but the first released version was recorded by British group The Shadows in June 1960 and released the following month. The song topped the UK singles chart for five weeks. In March 2005, Q magazine placed "Apache" at number 96 in its list of the 100 Greatest Guitar Tracks. In North America, The Shadows' original version is unknown, and the song is identified with Jørgen Ingmann, a jazz guitarist from Denmark. In 1961, Ingmann produced a cover version that, billed to "Jørgen Ingmann and His Guitar," made number two on the US pop chart, and number one on Canada's CHUM Chart. A 1973 version by the Incredible Bongo Band has been called "hip-hop’s national anthem".[1] Although this version was not a hit on release, the long percussion break in the middle has been sampled countless times on.    Download this sheet!

Music sheets - what is all about? Back in the 19th century, songs in the United States were popularized by musicians through music sheets.
