Janet Feder: Tiny Desk Concert

Janet Feder came to NPR with an infant guitar, the curiosity of a child and a wild imagination. The guitar was just a couple of months old — hand made for her by Los Angeles-based guitarist and teacher Miroslav Tadic. It's a nylon-string baritone electric! Its player is diminutive — barely taking up any space behind Bob Boilen's desk. Yet, if you look closely, you'll see the products of her immense curiosity and imagination. A small split ring (like the kind you put your keys on) holds a metal bead in place on the top E string near the sound hole. An alligator clip (some of us used to call 'em roach clips) bounces on a string to create a sound like ... well use your imagination.

Set List:
  • "Angles And Exits"
  • "Heater"
  • "I Hear Voices"
