Fast Bebop Style Jazz Guitar Lick

This is a faster bebop style Jazz Guitar Lick based loosely around the Eb Major Scale. I came up with this while I was looking at a transcription of a Pat Martino's version of "Just Friends" and trying to learn some phrases from that. While I was practicing that phrase this lick just kinda popped into my head. I didn't really analyze the harmony but I thought the chords in the tab sounded cool over this line. I think this lick works well in a variety of tempos so if you can't quite play it fast just work on getting a slower version in time.
