This is the one:

|------------9-12-|
|---------10------|
|------11---------|
|-9-12------------|

Help appreciated, cheers.

It really depends where u play it over. It are all the notes of a Bm11 chord, so if u play it over a B note; it's a Bm11 arpeggio.


This following shape is a DMaj7 arpeggio however, so if u play the entire lick over a D(maj7) it will likely be that sound with added notes:

|------------9----|
|---------10------|
|------11---------|
|---12------------|
|-----------------|
|-----------------|

This is also an option;
First one is: Bm triad and the 2nd one is: AMaj triad. If You play em through 2 measures, you have a perfect lick for transition from a Bmin chord to an A Chord.

|--------|---9-12-|
|--------|10------|
|-----11-|--------|
|-9-12---|--------|
|--------|--------|
|--------|--------|

Bm11 assuming you want it named from the note you start on.

That said, because the entire thing is in thirds (B up a minor third to D, D up a major third to F#, F# up a minor third to A, A up a major third to C#, C# up a minor third to E) you could give it any number of names depending on its context. Could you provide one?

No it's an A Minor + A Major Arpeggio


The first three notes are B - D - F#. This is not an A minor arpeggio.

I was busy in my thought proces.

IT doesn't imply to be exclusively Am + A maj sweep. Without any chords the sound of a Dmaj7 comes out as the strongest to my ear. But it doesn't start on a D.

Hmpmh true it starts with a B i messed up. but imo there's an B Minor arpeggio (1,3,5 note of an B Minor Scale) And an B Major Arpeggio

wrong;

it's a Bm triad and a AMajor triad stacked on top of each other making the polychord Bm11.

(I'm not even sure if I'm allowed to call it a (Bm11) polychord, since the note functions get mixed between the triads, and aren't constructed truly stacked)

It's n the key of D Major, However, I believe.

You'd notate the polychord as Bmin|Amaj, Bm|A etc.

Then you might be inclined to call it Dmaj13.

Yes I already had that thought out, which is why I gave the 2nd example in my initial post.

It depends over which chord u play it, since Bmin is also a chord in DMajor scale
