- We can schedule a Zoom video call (1h max) - we go through some ideas and clarify the job requirements and quote. Alternatively, a message with a detailed description of what's required can be enough.
- I do a high quality recording, I send you the stems both dry and wet plus a guitars_mix (standard export: file .wav / 24bit / 44100 kHz, let me know in advance if you prefer different specs).
The final delivery time is between 2 to 4 days after all details have been agreed - depending on the complexity of the request and from my schedule - if you have a hard deadline just let me know and I'll do my best to meet it.
I'm happy to make 2 revisions after the first delivery: the best way to avoid too many back-and-forth is to have a follow up call if needed or you can write me a clear and detailed break down of your suggested corrections.
I can provide music transcriptions (sheet music and TAB) for an extra fee, depending on style and length.
Let's get to work! :)

Great working with Pietro again, delivered quality music in a professional way once again.
Fast turnaround, fantastic player, what more could you ask for,
Hopefully work together again soon.
Pietro was really easy to work with. Good communication and useful Zoom call. Worked quickly (even though I hadn't provided a chord chart), and produced a great sounding contribution to the track.
This is my 2nd time working with Pietro and man, it's one of the quickest returns i've ever without sacrificing quality. He makes the guitar writing process super easy I just can't recommend Pietro enough. Going to him every time I need help writing a guitar section probably for the rest of my life lol.
Pietro is very polite and respectful, and very talented as well. He's great to work with and always delivers when he says he will, which is great too. I'd definitely recommend working with him, if you're thinking of doing it.
Pietro Is a pro, no doubt, and he is doing all he can to meet your expectations.
Really creative guy and very chill and easy to work with, as someone who plays the guitar as well myself(but not as my primary instrument), I can tell he really knows his instrument, and makes some really creative riffs!
Pietro is great, he's able to make the song according to the specifications of the client and make it sound really full of emotion. He's polite and is very good with deadlines. He has a lot of good ideas too.
Pietro is great to work with, super professional and always delivers amazing work on time. Pietro is always my first choice to work with, I will definitely be back :)

Pietro is an amazing musician, he knew exactly what I was looking for and delivered a high quality guitar solo in a really fast manner. He was professional and very responsive when I messaged him. I will definitely work with Pietro again and I would highly recommend him.
Another extraordinary session with Pietro where he has proven again to be a topnotch guitarist and arranger, not to mention his patience and perseverance with a demanding and picky customer as I was with this particular song. My gratitude and admiration to him. Grazie!
Great guitarist, very skilled and had a great time working with!! Definitely recommend!! :D
I found Pietro looking for somebody who could play flamenco guitar. His reviews, demos, and resume truly impressed me. Now that he has recorded a session for my music piece, I can see for myself that none of the reviewers was exaggerating. He is simply outstanding!
Pietro is excellent communicating and following instructions. I gave him freedom for some parts and was more specific for others, and he was just right on.
Grazie mille, Pietro!
Once again, nice collaboration with Pietro! The top of the top!
Nice collaboration with Pietro again! It's always a pleasure to work with him!
My team and I are astounded and in complete awe over his acoustic rendition of our recording. We allowed him full creative freedom to take our song into his realm and he did flawlessly. His detail and precision is so on point and his turn around time is incredibly smooth. I’m truly grateful for his talent on this earth.
Definitely will be working with him a lot more.
Great experience to be back at work with Pietro again! Professional, talented, friendly: it is always a pleasure to collaborate with him!
If you need any form of guitar tracks for your song, look no further, and just go with Pietro! Patient and simply amazing!

Interview with Pietro Dalla Vecchia
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I'm a guitarist, not a producer, expect clean and precise guitar tracks in return. I always do some basic quatization and compression/eq/reverb mix to my guitars but the final mix I'll leave it to your producer ;)
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Outside session works, I'm recording my own EP of original compositions in fingerstyle-percussive guitar, teaching guitar online...and hopefully playing gigs (Covid restrictions permitting..)
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Andrea Lepori as producer, check his work out: https://www.andrealepori.com His SoundBetter profile: https://soundbetter.com/profiles/4415-andrea-lepori
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Analog has unique warmth, although Digital has now come incredibly closed in quality.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been working as a session musician and dep musician for the past 8 years. Before that I was touring with my bands and teaching in music schools between Italy and UK.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I grew up listening to Rock-Blues/Metal/Funk and Pop music, then I opened to Fingerstyle and Jazz guitar passing through Spanish guitar and Gypsy Jazz style
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I range from pop/folk to heavy rock to funk/soul to gypsy guitar, with plectrum and/or fingerstyle.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: When I receive a request, I first listen to the reference songs and other music in a similar style, to get in the right zone and to analize the specs and characteristics of that style. Then I setup the project and the arrangement track, I do a quick sound check and I start jamming and recording ideas. Once I have a clear picture of all the parts, I tidy it up, I do some work on the sound (compressor, eq, reverb, amps, pedals etc.) then I send it to the customer for feedback: the first feedback from the client is very important, it guides me to what their specific taste is, it's sometimes difficult to understand what each other has in mind before having an actual draft to discuss. At this point it's usually minor adjustments followed by the export of the stems (dry and wet) and of the guitars mix. The jobs are usually completed in 2 to 4 days, in a few occasions (for simpler jobs or if I had an open schedule) I did deliver in one day.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: MacBookPro, Logic Pro X, Hughes & Kettner TubeMeister 36, Rhode NT2-A, Fender Stratocaster HSS (Seymour Duncan Pickups), EHX Black Finger Compressor, Cort SFX-10 (Fishman Rare Heart Pro Blend & Fishman Prefix Plus), Guitar Rig, Amplitube, iZotope Music Production Suite pro.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I give 100% of my talent and professionality to every request. I'm very open to critique and suggestions, don't be shy if you want to request any changes to my first drafts.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I crave for new challenges, I enjoy every new job as it is always a creativity boost!
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Acoustic guitar, laptop, audio interface, earphones.. and a solar-powered battery charger!!
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What are their influences, the reference music that they would like me to take inspiration from.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Tommy Emmanuel, Jon Gomm, Andy McKee, Jason Becker, Paul Gilbert, Nuno Bettencourt, Sylvain Luc, Bireli Lagrene, Jimmy Rosenberg, George Benson, Steve Vai, John Petrucci, Joe Satriani, Al Di Meola, Joao Gilberto, Toquinho, Miles Davis, Pierre Bensusan, Ted Greene, Mozart, Bach, Beethoven, Schubert.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Be as clear as possible in what your looking for, and don't be afraid of telling me what you like and what you don't in my first draft ideas. I'm willing to work a few extra days as long as you're happy with the result.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I always give 100%, my aim is to give the best product to my clients, I'm not afraid to go the extra mile.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring my expertise and professionality. If I'm allowed to, my personal taste and creativity ;)
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I receive a variety of requests, from writing and recording an entire guitar arrangement to recording guitar solos or giving arrangement tips to finish half-composed songs.
