Name of this scale?

A scale my teacher showed me today, he showed me before but I forgot it.

e----------------- -----------------------4-5-7------
B----------------------------------4-6-7-----------
G---------------------------4-5-7---------------
D--------------------4-6-7-----------------------
A--------------5-6-8----------------------------
E--------5-7-8----------------------------------
B-5-6-8-------------------------------------

And you move the pattern up 3 half steps to move into a new position. And it's the same pattern in all positions.

So that would be 4th position because it's the lowest fret and when it's moved up that 4 would be a 7 so it's 7th position. This scale sounds amazing by the way.

Starts with E Phrygian, then it gets confusing. That scale has ten notes.

Yes it's for soloing over atonal music. It has more than 10 tones.....it has all twelve when you move into other positions I believe ( I haven't actually checked).

EDIT: It only has 10 apparently.

A, B, C, D,E, Eb, F,G, Gb, Ab, A


I think I have something wrong on the Low B but thats how we were playing it today.

I think the Low B should match the high b.

e----------------- -----------------------4-5-7------
B----------------------------------4-6-7-----------
G---------------------------4-5-7---------------
D--------------------4-6-7-----------------------
A--------------5-6-8----------------------------
E--------5-7-8----------------------------------
B-4-6-7-------------------------------------

A, B, C, D, Eb, F, Gb, Ab, A 8 Notes.

It's not for atonal music. What you are describing is a half-whole diminished scale but you do have the low b string wrong. It fits best over altered dominant chords.

There are 8 notes to the scale:
1, b2, b3, 3, b5, 5, 6, b7

Your bottom B string should be: 9 7 6
