I would have to disagree, I think it's definetly a fast 3/4. It feels more like a fast quarter note feel then a med.-up triplet. Plus it would make more sense for when it goes to the A chord after each riff, in 3/4 it would just be 4 measures of 3/4, in 9/8 you would have to change the time signature to 12/8 or 2 measures of 6/8.
