Si Dios Me Quita La Vida, as Performed by Javier Solis










Greetings all,






Welcome to the Thirty-fourth presentation of the MACT Project, a requested song entitled, Si Dios Me Quita La Vida, as performed by Javier Solis. As stated in earlier blogs, Javier Solis' recordings are the standard for mariachi boleros being performed. Even newer arrangements, arrangements create for Luis Miguel and Pepe Aguilar, for example, still have the structure created by Javier Solis and his arrangers. It is always a joy to perform and transcribe his music.

Here it is:

Personally, I enjoy this piece's raw beauty and simplicity with a message that is pure emotion. I hope that you enjoy.

El Gato, Son Tradicional, as performed by Mariachi Azteca


Greetings all,






Welcome to the thirty-first entry of the MACT Project. We are happy to complete a request, El Gato, Son, as performed by Mariachi Azteca. This is a relatively unknown son, we had a hard time tracking down the audio for the request. Nonetheless, I was able to find a version of this song by Mariachi Azteca. After hearing it a couple of times, it sounds pretty good and is a good piece to throw into one's repertoire to spice-things-up.

Well here it goes: El Gato, son, as performed by Mariachi Azteca.

Hello all,






Welcome to the twenty-ninth entry of the MACT Project. Thank you for the support. Today we are presenting Costumbres, as performed by Rocio Durcal. This song is a requested piece and I hope that you guys enjoy it. Even though Rocio Durcal has not been with us for the last two or three years, I still can't believe that we will never be able to hear her beautiful voice live. I constantly kick myself for not taking advantage of going to see her perform live.

Well, here is the song, enjoy:
