The number of styles designated as Mexican or Tex-Mex I have found in Band-in-a-Box is very limited. I'm wanting to create some "huapangueros" such as Linda Ronstadt's Rogaciano El Huapanguero. Also, I had sequenced several traditional Mexican folkloricos such as Las Mananitas which require a very solid 3/4 time.

Perhaps there are styles that could be used for this type music; for example: songss by groups such as "The Hometown Boys" (Mexican polkas), "Los Super Seven" (La Sirena, El Canoero, Margarita), Flaco Jimenez (The Free Mexican Air Force) or "Los Tigres Del Norte" (songs with "corrido" in their name), but I haven't found them.

If someone could make some styles with real tracks or point me to some currently available styles that I could use, I would be most appreciative.

I had also requested some of the more modern styles as well in a previous post. Along with examples - as someone was wanting/willing to create some user content (or appeared to be).

http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=260930#Post260930

Not all the links may still be "alive" - but hopefully enough to be representative.

... the 49 pack 2017 does have 3/4 Mariachi, and a Mexican polka realtrack. So the more traditional styles have some coverage.

I'd love to see those new Mariachi styles expanded to include Mexican trumpets and violins.

Since some of the arranger keyboards are beginning to offer models that reflect various musical styles from around the world, might it be time for BIAB to begin thinking about categorizing musical styles across cultures? Just a thought.

Announcing…The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

We are excited to announce the release of a new project: The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

Songwriter Floyd Jane shows the songwriting process from inspiration to performance and publication: http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=IYMMZVvQdCw

The idea for this project came about when many members on this forum and elsewhere were asking questions about the song writing process. There are many aspects, and many parts of it necessary to create a song, get it arranged, performed, and then published on the internet. So we asked the great songwriter Floyd Jane, who is a regular member on this forum, if he could help. Floyd agreed and was even able to collaborate with other forum members, Janice and Bud. The result is this video we put together that you can see on YouTube or Facebook, called "The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)".

We hope this video helps other songwriters with their songwriting process, and also shows them tools that are available to them along the way. Also, we mention this User Showcase Forum, and hope to see many new aspiring or accomplished songwriters join this community :blush:

A big Thank You to Floyd for sharing your knowledge with the community and making this possible. And to Janice and Bud for your great collaboration!

Here is Floyd's original forum post for his song "A Little Bit Of Me": http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=433190
