525 – [Daniel Glass Show]: How Getting Fired Helped My Career.

In this podcast, Daniel relates the story of how he was fired from a tour with a blues artist for not having a strong enough shuffle, and how that experience inspired him to become an expert in the subject.

What’s covered in this session:

  • A discussion of Daniel’s early years as a freelance musician, and the associated struggles.
  • The excitement of Daniel’s first professional tour with blue artist Debbie Davies, learning about the artform of the blues and getting to experience legendary acts like Albert Collins, LaVern Baker, John Mayall, and Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown.
  • How being fired for “not having a strong enough shuffle” inspired Daniel to develop a more serious interest in this particular groove.
  • How working with Royal Crown Revue led Daniel to take a much deeper dive into the world of classic Rhythm and Blues and shuffles, eventually leading to writing the definitive book on the subject, and performing a clinic about shuffles hundreds of times all over the world.
