Verdine White: Rhythm of the Earth

We all know and love Earth Wind & Fire. Verdine White is one of those bass players who is just a joy to watch and listen to! So much energy! He has held the bass chair for EWF for more than 40 years!

I discovered this instructional video done by Verdine in the ’90s. If you remember the old “Starlicks” instructional videos, get ready for some serious nostalgia! This is definitely one to watch, with some great playing and excellent info to boot.
