A voiced allophone of /h/ would be pretty common in many languages when it
occurs between (voiced) vowels, so you can probably find some of them in
your allegro English. "whad'l ya have?" (Put a finger on your throat to
see if the voicing is interrupted during the haitch.)
In any event, your tongue has no business being anywhere near the place of
articulation for [G] when you're saying [h] (or [h\]).
