The first bar uses the A Harmonic Minor Scale over the Dm7b5 chord. John employs 4 note groupings [“Tetrachords”] to create a quick rhythmic alternate picking drive.
The 2nd bar uses the C minor Pentatonic scale: Notice how the F to E [from the previous bar] fall by 1/2 steps to the Eb creating a smooth connection.
In the 2nd example notice how to final two beats employ the C melodic “Jazz” minor scale.
