Subject: RE: Apache recorded 60 years ago!
"Boring"? - "processed white bread"?
Well not in my book: I loved "Apache" and others of the Shadows' hits for the overall sound, which was something new in those days. It didn't matter if it wasn't as technically taxing as some other guitar tunes, and I couldn't anyway have hazarded a guess at how difficult or not it was to play - I just liked it!
It didn't inspire me to take up electric guitar, tho' I started on acoustic later, perhaps more inspired by the folk singers I'd heard. My main guitar tutor book was "American Folk Guitar" by Alan Lomax and Peggy Seeger: price 5 bob (25p)!
