f it helps anyone this tune is basically in two minor pentatonic scales Gminor and C# minor (Dflat). The first riff and solo is in G minor, the chorus is C#minor, (and C of course)

There is a walk from the C# minor chord, C#-7, C#-6, then it becomes an A (you can hear this on the B string and then play it with a bar on the second fret. and then to the C# penta C to A, and the back to C#.

Repeat chorus end on BFlat.

Start Gminor penta riff.
