Absolutely nail-head, pfr.

‘Apache’, and HBM’s guitar-sound are the sole reason I pestered my dad to buy me a guitar (a ‘Spanish’-style, no-name, which cost £3/17s/6d ‘on the knock’ at our local electrical shop and had a 12th-fret action of about 1/2”), and set me on the guitar-playing road that I’m still on sixty years later. My guitars are considerably higher quality now though!

Most of the guys I’ve played alongside over that time (and that’s a lot of players) were inspired in the same way.
