Juanjo Domínguez (October 23, 1951 – February 10, 2019) was a classical guitarist and important interpreter of Argentine music, especially tango. In 2005, he was awarded the Konex Award for best instrumental single artist of popular music..
Dominguez was a true virtuoso of the guitar. His double scales, his tremolos in three strings (invented by himself when studying the Recollections of the Alhambra of the master Francisco Tárrega (1852-1909) it seemed to him that making the tremolo in a single string limited the sound), his speed comparable to that of an arch instrument and its high level of improvisation make it a unique guitarist. He declared having taken his inspiration from the famous Paraguayan counterpart Agustín Barrios (1885-1944). This was also a remarkable improviser (like all the great musicians of antiquity) and was a «mold» for the construction of his technique.
