Would love to start putting my music out there - ReverbNation, MySpace, SoundCloud etc but still have a way to go. My dream ambition is to one day have a song of mine used for TV/film/video game or the like but know this means having very professional sounding material. The money doesn't interest me (I have a day job) I just want to be part of creating something great.

With this in mind I'm after any constructive advice I can get from the great musicians and producers out there who may be able to give me pointers in what I can do to improve my "sound". I know I've still got a lot to learn, but any tips and advice would be much appreciated.

Music Background Played in a Liverpool band for 9 years (under different guises), chasing the elusive dream of a record contract. Got pretty close with gaining management, some big gigs and great radio slots, but never could quite make that final step.
Music Skills Taught myself basic music theory and keyboard skills then moved onto guitar, until I was proficient enough to start gigging. My main ambition was always songwriting. I also studied music at college for a while - something I tried to undo as soon as I could!
