Growing up the son of a Mexican-American mother and a Cajun-American father I listened to a lot of Mariachi music and Cajun music. In the mid- nineteenth century Germans migrated all along the Gulf of Mexico and they brought their waltzes and accordions with them. I can't help but believe that they influenced the Cajuns and Mexicans as there are so many musical similarities.

I've had the first verse for several years and this year wrote the rest. The timing could not have been better with the new Mariachi Realtracks.

Ranchero Song (5-12-16)

I once loved a horse named Izquierdo/ He had such a time turning right
When we tried to leave San Antonio/ we circled that city all night

I rescued a dog named Cerveza/ But I could not get him to eat
He spent all of his time drinking/ and wandering around in the street

My Ex left her calico Cinco/ who thought shaking hands was a jive
And every time that I went near her/ she raised up a paw for high five

Now it’s just me and my Bonita/ she’s seen me through trouble and strife
She said “Love I never will leave you”/ So I made that old goat my wife

Caballero, old Vaquero, I’m just a humble Ranchero
Tell Izquierdo, gato y perro/ that me and Bonita are fine

Lawrence,

Is this funny, or what? We say funny - loved that ending! Love the way you broke your voice for the high notes. If I did that, I'd be in the hospital for weeks!

We're still smiling.

Si se mantienen la escritura y el canto, te mantenga escucha!

Lawrence, Very funny and entertaining write. Nice full voice and some fine semi yodels. There is Mariachi music in the air where we live and I hear it and enjoy it every day. Loved everything about this. Tom

Outstanding!

The history of music melting pots is always fascinating -- thanks for the background.

Those first two lines set it up -- nobody could lose interest after that.

And man, the vocal is standout. You effortlessly move amongst genres...always maintaining your signature sound but working so well in disparate styles.

A wonderful listen!

J&B

Edit: We just came back for more listens...over the top good.

Lawrence, your vocal on this is outstanding! This is great! I had never thought about the German waltz connection to this genre of music but it makes sense. Thanks, Torrey

Hello, Lawrence

Mariachi's band comes into my eyes.
I have been seen in movies of Presley etc. in my childhood, I remember the guitarron very well because it was very impressive.
The music is very fun. And so is yours.
Your vocal is great.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Now we see your musical roots ;-)
this is so cool, it's got tension all through the mix. Beautiful vocals as always.
And yes, the real tracks are so very well-chosen!

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
