Pentatonic Step Down from Fleetwood Mac

Question

Can someone tell me the string and numbers for the pentatonic step-down in the Musical Ideas class? There are no CC's in Jonathon's classes, so I have to go entirely from visual cues and a little from sound vibrations which are real definitive until I have the work in my brain well first. I asked a sighted person to help, but they weren't able to follow it either well enough to interpret it for me. I am certain that this technique can probably be done in any pattern, and he just showed it in pentatonic because that is pretty easy to follow most of the time. Unfortunately, I am not quite getting it after play the last note and then skip a note and go back to the note you skip. Where do you go from there? 

All I need is last note pentatonic, skip the next note, and play the third note, and go back to second note that you skipped. I realize it is descending order, but label last note as the first note as in first note played and descend the scale. 1, 3,2, ? Where do you go? If you can give me that throughout the rest of the pattern, I will be able to follow it and apply it to other scales. I just can't see where his fingers go well enough.

Thanks in advance.

Maybe @Brock or @Jonathan have the time to type this in for me. I would certainly appreciate it immensely. Thanks.
