Simple minor pentatonic scale

I'm not sure what mode this is, but it's the simplest minor pentatonic scale.

The minor pentatonic scale is the base of most rock and roll music, especially solos.  Learn it well, by fingering and ear.  Learn to play it quickly, forwards and backwards.

TAB Format - A Minor Pentatonic

E ---------------------5-8-
B -----------------5-8-----
G -------------5-7---------
D ---------5-7-------------
A -----5-7-----------------
E -5-8---------------------

How many songs do you know that have parts of that in them?  Hmm...
