Phrase 1 is a eight bar T&V phrase. The lead scale is F# pentatonic minor: F#, A, B, C#, E, F# (1,b3,4,5,b7,8) with D# (6) added. Eric Johnson's tune, Zap is the general context for this phrase. It appears on two of Eric's albums: Seven Worlds (1978), Tones (1986), and his DVD, Live From Austin Texas, Eric Johnson (1988). "Zap" was also nominated for the 1987 Best Rock Instrumental Performance Grammy Award.
Based in Austin, and proficient in many styles, Johnson has been successful at extending the state of the art of Texas blues rock beyond it's borders and around the world.
