Mateus Asato (December 29, 1993) is a guitarist from Campo Grande, Brazil: he now lives in Los Angeles.
Mateus Asato, Brazilian guitar prodigy and social media shooting star is making his presence felt with his tasteful, melodic playing and annoyingly good technique, mastering everything from bluesy soul and jazzy ballads to shredding metal.
Mateus Asato’s playing is instantly recognizable; melodic chord progressions interwoven with flurries of tasty single note lines, seamlessly switching between his pick and his fingers. His playing grew from a wide range of musical influences.
Asato’s style arose from attempting to play like his heroes and finding his own ways of going about the stuff that he couldn’t play. This pragmatic approach to the guitar has resulted in a uniquely eclectic style that displays a soulful touch, animated with passion and tempered by a keen sense of lyricism.
