Would someone want to help me dissect the riff at the beginning.

I know it's in B but it's a really confusing riff, haha.

I figured maybe some of you more experienced folk could recognize something I'm not picking up to help me learn it easier.

It sounds like it's in 5 or something, but I really think it's just in 4 and playing a really weird way.

I don't know about B. It sounded like G major 7 and major 6 arpeggios to me.

EDIT: I sounded like an idiot but I heard the B after the G in the beginning of the riff, not the G itself. But i could tell there was something before the G, but it's just a really weird riff.

If you cannot figure out the song:

1. Download VLC media player for free.
2. Slow song down in VLC media player.
3. If still too fast to figure out repeat step 2.
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.
