Just wondering about scales

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

Do you play all the notes in between like on the b string its 5-6-7-8
or do you just play 5 and 8
By adding the 6th fret to the A string and 8th fret to the G string you can add color to that scale pattern of any minor pentatonic. Guessing from the question you,ve just started playing, adding those notes can make playing that pattern more interesting in case you get bored of it, but its also a little more difficult.
