Guitar Special Vol.101 mit Dave Goodman

In dieser Artikel Serie geht es um das Handwerkzeugs beliebter Gitarristen. Welches sind ihre Lieblingsgitarren und wie ist ihr Bezug dazu. Diesmal mit Dave Goodman.

Eigentlich ist Dave Goodmann ja eher als Meister der Acoustic Gitarre bekannt. Auf diesen Gebiet schwört er auf Yamaha Gitarren. Für unser Special stellt Dave allerdings seine selbstgebaute Stratocaster vor, mit der er viele Erinnerungen verbindet.

Dave Goodman: I built this guitar in 1986 when I was the guitar tech/ repair guy at Paul`s Music in Vancouver B.C. Canada. I copied a 60’s strat body and I copied a 50’s Tele neck. I wound the pickups myself as well. This guitar I built from scratch, (not just assembled parts)

Throughout my career whenever I played with, shared the stage with or met an artist I admired, I had them sign the guitar…actually carve their names in with a knife or a screw driver.

The names and bands who signed the guitar:  I opened for the Doobie Brothers at Vancouver Pacific Coliseum, I opened for Meatloaf and Tower of Power at 86 Street Theater in Vancouver, I played with David Sanborn at the Wave Waikiki in Hawaii, I opened for Duke Robilliard in Bremen, Germany, I opened for Peter Mafay in Germany, and I played a 90 minute concert for John Lee Hooker in San Francisco. John Lee was not strong enough to carve his name so he used a big, black felt pen. I laquered his signature to preserve it. I opened for Jeff Healey in Western Canada (5 dates) Carlos Santana signed it when I delivered to his home in San Rafael two units of the „Relvolver“ , a rotating speaker system which I  designed and licensed to  Mesa Boogie in the 90’s. There are some additional names, but these are the most interesting. The guitar is like a musical diary, mostly of the first half of my career. ..and John Lee Hooker told me I was one of the best guitarists he ever heard! :
