Maithan Knabach on SoundBetter

Acoustic Guitar (nylon) sessions, arrangements, and compositions. Get in touch! I'm looking forward to collaborating on your project!

I'm a guitarist, composer, and arranger from Brazil. In the last years, I've composed soundtracks for plays and videos, made choir arrangements, and played Brazilian, Pop, and Latin music (solo and accompaniment).

The 7-string guitar and rhythms like Samba, Bossa Nova, Choro, Milonga, Chamamé, Chacarera, and Pop are my specialty. I also develop a solo instrumental project through my own compositions and you can check some of them on my YT channel.

    Maithan is an amazing musician with an incredibly beautiful playing tone. He's very open to feedback, and will work with you until his playing matches exactly what you're hearing in your head. Overall a really great experience -- if you're looking for a guitar player, look no further!

    Maithan created a beautiful arrangement for my song and delivered a beautiful performance. I'm so happy with how everything turned out and I will definitely ask him again whenever I need more classical guitar parts. Thank you Maithan!

  8. Review by Ashley C.

    Working with Maithan was an absolute pleasure! My team contacted him to compose, play, & record the music for our short animated film, Cariño. He was extremely receptive to any notes or suggestions we had and was very communicative, making sure that our vision for the film could be met while also providing his own artistic take. The end product was more than we could have ever asked for, truly beautiful! We couldn't say enough good things about Maithan, we highly recommend working with him.
