3 Major Triad Arpeggio Shapes?

After looking at some stuff online, and having a conversation with someone I've found myself with a question on my mind that doesn't seem to have a definitive answer via google heh.


This person I was talking with brought up that there are 3 major triad arpeggio shapes (there are others, but there are 3 that generally get used the most). He ran out of time, so I thought I'd google them... there doesn't seem to be a site that talks about arpeggios in this manner.

Anyone else know what he's on about, and if so, can you link me up with the 3 triad arpeggio shapes?

(by shapes I'm thinking of 4 fret boxes, give or take a fret)
(This was in reference to the CAGED system if it helps)

Maybe he was talking about chord inversions. There are three inversions of a major triad
root position
first inversion
second inversion

???

In regard to the CAGED method there are five chord shapes not three.
Each major triad can be found in five different positions across the fretboard.

Yea, never mind. I found a page FINALLY... It took me over a week of searching google to find a page that had the CAGED system for arpeggios. Thank you though. Yea, basicly I think he ment there were 3 that were the most used and the others don't get as much use due to their difficulty in comparison.

↑You do realize that the shapes are the same whether you play them as a chord or an arpeggio right? You can use any old chord chart for arpeggios.

That explains what I mean.

the chord shape is in the arpeggio shape, but there's more around the chord shape in the arpeggio.

Um, you do know that one translation for the word 'arpeggio' is 'broken chord'?

An arpeggio is just a chord where the notes are played in sequence.
