Thank's.

Good to recognize what may be happening within the music but (IMHO) there are more important dimensions to musical communication. Hopefully you are recognizing that what makes Keith a great player isn't just the notes played or an analysis of forms he uses, it's his heartfelt delivery and consistency of feeling. You can copy all the licks you want and string them together but unless you can deliver them with feeling and integrity it will not communicate much.

It's nothing special. He's pretty much just using the blues scale, throwing that Bb in there to give it that bluesy sound. Don't get caught up in the CMaj-B7. He's generalizing the harmony, playing as if it were all Em, and going for that blues sound. Analyze what he's doing against an Em chord and you'll see it fits much better.
