Please watch video above for a more detailed analysis:
Here is another Alternate Picking John Mclaughlin jazz/fusion guitar lick. This is based on a variation of a 2 5 1 with F/Eb substituted for Dm7 going to G7#5b9 to CMaj7.
As you can see above the first part employs the C melodic minor scale whilst the second part employs the C Harmonic minor scale.
The only odd note being a Bb [Not of C Harmonic minor scale] for colour and because the B natural has already been heard.
The lick starts on a downstroke for strict alternate picking.
