does anyone know the first riff he plays and if you do could you tell me
or if you know the scale he plays that would be helpful too

Find out all the notes he plays and the note he ends on. Then go to Guitar Pro (given you have it on your computer) and use the scale finder to help you. You just fill in the lick in your track and ask the programme to tell you which scale it is and the programme will give you a couple of choices. It is the one that start with the ending note.
