Expanded pentatonic scale

OK.  So you've got the minor pentatonic scale down, and you need some new material for your leads.  Impress all your friends with this scale, which looks and sounds way more complicated than it really is.

You can impress all but the experienced guitar players with this scale if you can play it fast, and change directions during the course of the scale (for example, going halfway down, going back up a few notes, then down again.)

This is tricky to learn!  Especially backwards.

E -------------------------6-8-
B ---------------------6-8-----
G ---------------3-5-7---------
D -----------3-5---------------
A -----1-3-5-------------------
E ---3-------------------------
