Sounds like G major with a lowered third degree and no sixth. So some type of pentatonic/blues scale?

Notes are G A Bb D E F# from what I can tell.

Edit: Sorry, not sixth, I meant fourth.

if it has no sixth, how do you get E?

*cough*harmonic minor*cough* (or possibly ascending melodic minor, depending on what the sixth is)
Anfangen ist leicht, Beharren eine Kunst.

Going on a limb here - G dorian?


the F# kind of makes me believe it's rather just harmonic/melodic minor. but in your defense, the leading tones of the aeolian and dorian modes were raised in some old modal compositions for a smoother resolution to the tonic.

Meant to type fourth instead of sixth
Melodic minor in ascending form was my first guess since if you add in a C that's what you'd have. In retrospect that was probably the best guess too.

I'm just going on the basis that it works over the progression, particularly that opening lick. Completely debatable whether it's true
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.

If it wasn't for that D I would almost say diminished.
