Subject: RE: Apache recorded 60 years ago!
I would agree that pioneers like Lang and Johnson have been hugely underestimated in the history of guitar playing, compared to the hero worship of more recent players. However, their music was probably less accessible and didn’t really inspire a whole generation of followers to pick up the instrument and have a go themselves. Let’s face it, Apache must be the world’s easiest guitar instrumental, with not many notes in it and some repeated almost endlessly.
