Green Help with transposing the key of a riff.

Hi, i am not very familiar with music theory, and i am playing guitar for a local christmas carol event. I found the riff of one of the songs we will be doing 'angels we have heard on high', i believe it is in the key of G, but i need to transpose it to the key of 'E' which is what the rest of the band will be playing. How do i transpose and play the riff of the song into the key of E instead of G??

This is the link with the riff included

This is looks like it is in F to me. Since F to E is only a half step down you could just tune your guitar a half step down to Eb standard.
