We will now apply this to the most common and easiest scale on planet guitar, the A minor Pentatonic scale.

Although, the pattern is 1 2 3 1 2 3 I am counting 3/4 as in – 1 and 2 and 3 and for rhythmic momentum and only 1 2 3 in the 3/8 bar.

The fretting hand shapes are mainly Quintal and Quartal moving around in the cycle of 4ths. Although, there is some flattened 5th and Major 3rd movement.

How John Mclaughlin plays fast guitar lines with accenting the 1st and 3rd notes

The key to this short Lick is to employ “Alternate Picking” guitar technique starting on a down stroke! NEXT: Try to accent the 1st and 3rd notes of each 4 note grouping [Tetrachords]. This will make your picking stable and even with solid timing.
