Jane Why Did You Treat Me Like That?

Jane has a strong hook. I wrote it many moons ago. It was inspired by a broken heart. :(

Drums are a mix of MIDI and Mixcraft loops.
Guitar is a Strat style Yamaha with a humbucker in the bridge position. Amp is a simulator.
Bass is a Fender Jazz going through a guitar amp simulator.
Vocal Mic is a cheap Peavey. Some compression and delay on the vocals.
Room reverb and high mids boost on the entire mix.

Enjoy. :)

Guitar reminds me of early tracks by the Stranglers. I'm not sure about the track length, for the genre I usually think of 2 and a half minutes or less, but maybe you think of it differently. 8)

When I used to listen to songs that I liked I always wanted them to last longer especially when the band was jamming at the end. 2 - 3 minute songs were made for radio.

In the best cover bands I was in we didn’t allow noodle-doodling. :lol: :wink: No free-style solos either, we played it like the albums. However IMO, with the right musicians, jamming is way fun and rules!!! :D
