Janet Noguera: “Nohemi”
 
Fingerstyle guitarist plays her two-handed tapping tune in the Peghead Nation studio.
September 15, 2015

Guitarist Janet Noguera is starting to make a name for herself in the contemporary fingerstyle scene. Currently working on a bachelor’s degree in classical guitar performance with Bill Coulter at the University of California, Santa Cruz, Janet has also studied with Alex de Grassi and Thomas Leeb. She performs around Northern California and has opened for Andy McKee.

In 2014, Janet’s YouTube performance of her composition “Aventuras Misteriosas” won her the first prize in Lowden Guitars’ “Lowden Young Guitarist of the Year” competition. As the winner, she traveled to Lowden’s Northern Ireland shop to pick out a guitar (choosing a Richard Thompson signature model) and to perform alongside Jon Gomm and Thomas Leeb.

In this video, shot in the Peghead Nation studio, Janet performs her new composition “Nohemi.” Named after a newborn niece, the tune mixes stylistic influences and relies heavily on two-handed tapping techniques.
