That's just blues scale. Basically F# minor pent (the track is a one-chord F# groove) with a lot of bending. I think he might add a 9th here and there.
And there's a couple of nice chords at the end, right up on 9/10th fret (simple triads, but a nice contrast with single-note stuff).
And he just improvised that, of course, he didn't "write" it. (Not dissing the man's creativity, he's only demonstrating a guitar.)
If you know your scale patterns, this stuff is pretty easy. No theory required. Playing at that speed is a tad harder, of course.... But that's just practice. (hehe, "just"....)
