a second guitar Instro from me. This time, in what I hope is a TexMex style – whatever that is.
“Mexicana Tex” is a working title. If anyone has a better idea– please, please post it up.
I like the sultry sexiness of the beat. Quite a latin flavour to the style – maybe our Texas friends can explain why TexMex is what it is.
Its an AABABA+long double coda and came about when I was noodling a chord progression. The idea was that each time the B came up it would result in a key change. I hope you think it worked.
Anyway, here is “Mexicana Tex”, or whatever.

MEXICANA TEX

Here's what's in the recipe -
1293:Bass, Electric, TexMexCountry Ev 120
511:Guitar, Electric, Soloist Dire Ev
1294:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm TexMexCountry Ev 120
510:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm Dire Ev 140
1173:Accordion, Rhythm PopCalypso Ev 100
1292:Accordion, Rhythm TexMexCountry Ev 120
RealDrums - TexMexCountryEv8^6-a:Groove, Hat Bell and Shaker , b:QuarterRide, Hat Bell and Shaker
Some “live” rhythm acoustic guitar in there too – Tanglewood Jumbo.
Cheers
Ian

Hi Ian, being a mostly instrumental guy, I really enjoyed listening to this. Great backing track really sets the mood nicely. As I listened to this I couldn't help wondering what a cat gut strung classical would have sounded like. Great job all round.

Cheers

Dire over TexMex... whoulda thunkit? Excellent... gonna have to try one of these myself.

The accordian definately drives home the south-of-the-border feel.

In places I could definately visualize one of those ol' spaghetti westerns. Bravo!

Ian,

Very nice tune. Like the guitars trading off. For some reason I'm craving the El Tucan Sol at Jardin Corona.

This is some great guitar playing! Loved it!

Super backing track also.

This sounds like the Shadows and/or the Ventures to me.

Two thumbs up.

Hi guys
thanks for listening and your kind words.
Fun to do and maybe my "influences" (Shadows, Ventures, Knopfler) can't be hidden behind a sexy Tejano (I think thats what its called) beat.
cheers
ian

Hi Ian,

This is excellent! Honestly! I definitely hear the influence of The Shadows. I've got to hand it to you, your sense of melody is something to be jealous of. Also, the mix is perfect. This one is radio-ready as far as I can tell!

All the best,
Noel

Like the feel Ian. Your guitar work and tone sounds good with the TM arrangement.

Hello Noel, Dazz,Josie, Bob and Steve for the very kind words. I'm glad you enjoyed the music.
It was just heaps of Fun to do.
I wish there were some Styles canted more towards that 60's and 70's Instrumental sound / genre than there are. Maybe one for the WishList
cheers

Excellent 60's style instrumental.

Through my Cambridge Soundworks 2.1 speakers the shaker and accordian seemed out front while the quarter bell was a little quiet.

The name "Mexicana Tex" suits the song quite well.

Hi Jim
thanks for listening and your comment.
The accordion mix was down to me - too loud maybe needed backing off a tad - but the RD drum track already contained the shaker and bell mixed in at "volume" so I am stuck with that.
Glad you enjoyed it.
cheers
ian

Hi Ian.

I've come to this one a bit late and it all seems to have been said.

Great track and I agree with Noel - it sounds radio-ready.

Mexicana yes, but I could just as easily imagine myself on the banks of the Seine in Paris. Would make good film music. Excellent!

ROG.
