hey can somebody show me the forms in code for what the maj7 arpeggio is and the m7 arpeggio. you are a great person if u do this.
This is what you get.

I'll use the key of C.


[B]Cmaj7th arpeggio. (C E G B)[/B]

|---------------------------7--8--|
|------------------------8--------|
|---------------------9-----------|
|--------------9--10--------------|
|-------7--10---------------------|
|-7--8----------------------------|


Try making the minor7th arpeggio yourself - Instead of the intervals 1 3 5 7, use 1 b3 5 b7. (C Eb G Bb).

^The arpeggio doesn't necessarily have to start on the root note... you can start it wherever you like, that's just a position for you to refer to.

Crash course in theory:

IF you take your major7th intervals along with a major triad, you have 1 3 5 7 - this is a major 3rd (hence no flat symbol before it) and a major 7th (no flat symbol before it).

If you apply these to the key of C, you get the notes C E G B Therefore, playing those notes on the neck, in that order would give you a Cmaj7 arpeggio.


You can start it on other notes though. These could still be called Cmaj7th arpeggios but would be inversions of it.

Cmaj7 - 1st inversion: C E G B
Cmaj7 - 2nd inversion: E G B C
Cmaj7 - 3rd inversion: G B C E
Cmaj7 - 4th inversion: B C E G

But you can call each inversion by a different arpeggio name for example, the second inversion could also be called Em(add b6) if you really wanted to.
Or the 3rd inversion could be called Gsus4maj7 and so on.

As long as you keep the notes in that particular order, you are playing an arpeggio.
All an arpeggio is, is the notes of a chord, played separatly.


P.S - John;
major triad with maj7: 1 3 5 7
major triad with dom7: 1 3 5 b7

minor triad with maj7: 1 b3 5 7
minor triad with dom7: 1 b3 5 b7
