I usually don't make posts that simply ask "how do you do that?" but I guess that's what this post is.

A while ago someone asked a question about this video


I thought it was damned impressive. Anyhow, I have no idea how to start trying to play this for some reason.

What techniques is he using for a solo around the 2:00 mark?

Are those chromatic runs that are leading up to it?

Any help would be appreciated

Is he playing a scale in boxed position?

Obviously not. Besides, scales are anywhere, not just in a box. It's the notes that count.
