Question about billy talent song structure
I'm new to the songwriting world and I am trying to learn as much as I can about musical structure to use in the writing of my own music. I've always loved the intro riff to billy talent's "pins and needles". I just want to know about how it is structured and why the notes that are being played are being played. Like if it is a certain scale or other musical structure. I know how to play it guitar and my best guess is that the key is in G minor (could be very wrong). The riff is obviously centered around the chord progression but I just want to know the theory behind if there is any at all. I've posted a link below to the song: https://youtu.be/pEN1eeyXsTU
Thank you very much.
