About learning arpeggios

I'm planning to learn Maj7, min7, Dom7 and Dim7 arpeggios.
How would you build your practice routine?

Practice the CAGED system.

The theory of the CAGED system is that every chord has a seperate C, A, G, E and D shape.
You can play an A chord in the standard A shape, you can move a C shape up to the 12th fret, you can move an E shape to the 5th fret etc.

How I would practice this is, I just pick a random chord, for example: Cmaj7, then you look for the C, A, G , E and D shapes that make up a Cmaj7.

Do you know how to do sweeps and play other arpeggios? Like simple major, minor and diminished sweeps? That is if you mean playing in a sweeping motion. Playing arpeggios doesn't necessarily mean sweeps.

well, let me rephrase: playable arpeggio shapes are based on the caged system.

and a quote from justinguitar.com "Note that the bracketed letter is the CAGED shape that the arpeggio is derived from." on the page where he lists the arpeggio shapes

Yes I know some sweepable shapes but I don't intend to sweep my shapes. because I know that I still need to work on my alternate picking first.

So?
It's nice to have your harmony notes laid out for you by shapes rather than having to instantly recall all 3/4 notes of a (min/maj7)chord and having to find them everywhere.
When I hear a progression is Am7|C|F|G, the first thing that goes through my mind is find some shapes close to each other, rather than A C E G| C E G| F A D| G B D

see i think in sounds because i don't suck and realize that any of the 12 available notes will be right next to me on the fretboard at all times

And there is no possible way to combine shapes and thinking in sounds at the same time? Because I do that.

After I learned caged I learned linking every single arpeggio up the neck.

Ex: A minor arpeggio starting from 5th fret up to 17th fret.

Then i'd do the same thing except with Am9.. then Am11, etc.

Mostly just an exercise though.

Over minor chords, I tend to find it easier to superimpose maj7 and m7 arps from the 3rd and 5th chord tones to get m9 and m11 sounds respectively. Rather than learn a massive extended arpeggio.

just sayin'

Yeah I know what you mean.

In reality I never use super extended arpeggios. But back then it really helped me learn the fretboard & w/ dexterity. Also helped improve my ear a bit learning where the extensions are relative to notes in the chord.

Lol, I don't think I can even do some of these super long extended arpeggios anymore, I always want to throw in other notes.

if you know the 5 positions of the major scale, practice the arpeggios in each shape diatonically. Hope this helps
