THE WEEKLY RIFF – HYVMINE’s Chromatic Insanity on “Cliffhanger”

Cliffhanger is a 90’s action movie starring Sylvester Stallone, and I think they probably should have held up production until 2018 so that they’d have the perfect theme song from Hyvmine. On this episode of The Weekly Riff, Al Joseph and Alon Mei-tal show you how to play their banger “Cliffhanger”, a riff with a lot of fun chromatic motion and interesting twists.

Catch Hyvmine performing at the Viper Room in Hollywood this Sunday, and pick up their killer debut album Earthquake, out now!
