What theory/technique is Kirk using in this little snippet of solo??

I want to understand what "technique" is going on in this repeating triplets phrase (4x) at 5:22 to 5:34.
The video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90KBh0gCccw&t=5m20s

Is he is doing something like "playing over changes"?
He is playing 4 distinct triplets phrases that sounds related
(like just shifting down a fret)
The backing chords are: F# ...A ...B ...(D->E->D)

Here is the tab:

He's not "playing over the changes" in the way that most people would mean it. He's changing notes as the chords change but everything he's doing fits in to the key centre of the song (F#).

"playing over the changes" is more like where you actually change scale based on the chord underneath, not just change the exact notes you're playing. Playing over the changes only really applies when the chord progression underneath is non-diatonic.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that the thing Marty Friedman explains in Melodic Control?

I figured out the tab is wrong.
I think he's doing Eddie Van Halen style fingertapping, this is why it's so "out of this world".

Yeah, it's basically the main thrust of what he's saying in it. Really it's much more of a jazz idea than anything else though, that's the place where it's really most useful.

He isn't, you can hear the picking if you listen closely.
