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.

In the first example we see a minor pentatonic pattern moving in groups of three notes that displaces the rhythm. This creates a unique fresh sound to the most used scale on the guitar. The rhythmic displacement also pushes the rhythm along. Also notice the use of the interval of a perfect 5th.

In the next example we can see how Eric Johnson uses 4 note guitar patterns. He also uses the interval of a perfect 4th which creates motivic movement.

This next example shows how Eric Johnson takes the most overused cliche on the guitar [the minor pentatonic] and exploits the intervals to create a fresh and unique sound.

In this last example we can see how Eric Johnson employs the interval of a perfect 4th again, but, this time with arpeggios and inversion that creates a melodic sound to the ear. Again this moves us far away from the minor pentatonic cliches.
