Bass guitarist Garry Goodman has performed as a member in the rhythm section for many classic recording artists including Robert John, Thelma Houston,The Fifth Dimension, Big Joe Turner, Little Anthony, Jimmy Rogers, Frankie Avalon, and The Penguins.
Garry absolutely relies on his Höfner 5000-1 fretless for both two handed touch style playing and to play his Percussive Harmonics. He has this to say about his Höfner fretless bass: “The Höfner fretless has a beautiful resonant tone and is incredibly responsive to my percussive tapping and touch style playing. At the same time, it is excellent for traditional fretless playing styles. It is an indispensable tool”.
Instrument: Violin Bass
