Yuto - Electric Guitar

Biography

Most children born in this new millennium have yet to blossom. However, most 8-year-old’s haven’t traded guitar licks with the legendary Les Paul. Most 8-year-old’s aren’t Yuto Miyazawa.

Born February 21st, 2000, in Tokyo, Japan, Yuto Miyazawa has been playing guitar since the ripe age of three. Although he has had a few guitar lessons, the bulk of his expertise comes from truly wanting to play…all the time. Generally, if he is not in school, he has a guitar in his hands. That love of guitar is quickly making Yuto the internet's latest addiction, as his videos rack up views on youtube and Vimeo, and his name is scattered across hundreds of forums and blogs.

Yuto’s influences are fairly apparent, as he usually seen playing his custom Randy Rhodes-style, checkered flying V guitar, which dwarfs him. Along with Ozzy Osbourne and Randy Rhodes, Yuto is influenced by Eric Clapton, KISS and Metallica.

After playing multiple variety shows in Japan, Yuto made his first trip to the States in May, when he played with a few big names at various clubs in Manhattan. In his short stint in the U.S. Yuto was a hot commodity. He played with Les Paul at The Iridium, two nights later he hopped onstage with GE Smith and Moonalice at Rebel, and finally he headed over to B.B Kings to play with Galactic. He also beat Chevy Chase in thumb wrestling, but who hasn’t done that.

Yuto is now recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s youngest professional guitar player.
