Hi Daniel
Pete Davies here, I wrote to you about a month ago. Just to update you, things are progressing nicely with the new production library in the UK and I should be finalising details by the end of the month. Meanwhile can you let me know what the situation is regarding the publishing of your songs? Are they already published and if so, in which territories? Thanks, All the best Pete (contact me at pete@theguitarlibrary.co.uk)

Hi Daniel
My name is Pete, I have a guitar based production music library with a lot of success in the UK. I'm busy looking for new writers of instrumentals, we do pretty well. If you are at all interested, please drop me a line. Yours, Pete

Hi Daniel
Pete Davies here, I contacted you last week. Here's a quick update on what's happening. Right now I'm not only finalising the way the new website looks and can be accessed, but also sorting a contract that is both fair to writers and to my company. It's taking a more time than I would like but it's best to get it right from the start.

Just to keep you in the picture, what I will require is guitar based instrumentals, in a variety of mixes. What I mean is that producers like to hear a full mix, a bass and drums mix, a guitar mix, a lead instrument mix and maybe any other short stems ie: interesting stabs or flourishes in the music. This of course makes your music more saleable as it presents it in a variety of usable forms let me know if you can do this.
I'll be back in touch as soon as the paperworks sorted but until then, all the best and stay in touch!
Regards

Pete Davies
Here's my home email which is probably better, petercdavies@btinternet.com
