I'm not to good at learning fast melodies like that.

If it helps, I believe the song is in the key G


thanks in advance!

that song uses 4 note arpeggios of the A minor scale. it's not too hard to figure out once you know that, on piano it's a little easier mind you, but basically you're playing either maj7s or m7s moving along in one step increments most of the time up and down your A minor scale.

it's probably harder to play on guitar. when i play it i just forget having to sound like the CD and just play the inversions of those chords on guitar, and arpeggiate them the way it's easy on the guitar.
