Hello, Rob

Sad song!
Very fascinating.
As Alan said, Your voice works perfectly for this one.
It reminds me of Presley's film "Fun in Acapulco”, for some reason.
I heard Mariachi for the first time in the movie at that time.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

You should be proud of this one, Rob smile Thanks so much for sharing!

Band-in-a-Box® - Freezing Tracks

Like what you hear in Band-in-a-Box®? Make sure to Freeze the track(s) or song! Once frozen, it won't be regeneraged or change when you play it again - and your choice isn't final, since you can unfreeze them just as easily:
-press the blue snowflake button within the track name of the mixer window
-press the blue snowflake button within the expanded toolbar of the program (Ctrl + T will swap between the two toolbar views), and select the track(s)

Note: If you want to force Band-in-a-Box® to generate tracks without adjusting the Freeze settings, hold down the Shift key as you press the [Generate and Play] button (the fly-by hint will remind you of that) or choose the menu command Play | Play Special | Generate (even if tracks are frozen).

To learn more about freezing your Band-in-a-Box® tracks or songs, visit Chapter 5: Playing Songs | Freezing tracks of our Online Manual.
