Desperado

Audio problem: When the kid shows El Mariachi how he plays, you can hear the part that he's not playing because it's a constant sound on one string and he's stroking all the strings at the same time.

Audio problem: When the bad guys in the car are shooting at Danny Trejo, the kid with the broken leg kills him with six shots we see and hear, but the slide on his gun locks back after 5.

Continuity mistake: When the bad guys try and kill Antonio Banderas in the bookstore, after killing about the third bad guy, you can clearly see his gun lock on an empty chamber, but there's a cut and he immediately carries on shooting.

Question: I have two questions: 1) At the beginning of the movie, when Buscemi tells the story about the mariachi in this one bar in Saragossa, Tavo (the one Mexican that is later in the movie killed on the street by the mariachi) says something in Spanish, and all start laughing - does anybody know what he says? 2)When the mariachi prepares to go to the Tarasco-Bar, in his bathroom, what song is played?

Answer: Tito Larriva as Tavo says (in reference to Steve Buscemi) that "This guy smells like shit." The name of the song being played is "Manifold de Amour" by Latin Playboys.
