Just over a month into this game - my learning journey continues. Since this release I have discovered many avenues and tactics to be used in the future...
Play-listing & Reviews
Being trying to get on to playlist mainly through submit hub since it easy to apply - as i said I was using this track as a learning tool before I release my own tracks - So I met submithub and applied to playlist and a peer review area named hot or not! No playlist has accepted me (although i understand the track wasn't quite right for most) - I got good feedback on the whole - mainly people liking the vocals and the attempt to make a good version of a classic - Highest score 94/100 (fire) - Its nice to have feedback and been nice reviewing other songs in exchange and to listen as a reviewer:

"Okay, at first... I was really not a fan. Like don't touch Floyd, it's bar cover band territory. But when it dropped, I got it. Good take on adding variety to a "Don't touch it" tune. "

"Very good sounding track, best wishes. Nice job. Love the vocals"
Good way to connect to community
Receive feedback from strangers - something to consider
Listening to new music
Understanding what people are looking for
Time - Consuming
Can hurt when negative things are said (unless they true)
Another form of social media to manage
Tips to take on for next track:
Find the right playlists
Engage with reviewers to become fans
Know realistic expectations of promotion
Try to get reviews/blogs before release
