Hey,

I've been practising my sweep picking a lot lately, but I've gotten bored of the major/minor/maj7th swept arpeggios.

Is there a site which has a list of the different arpeggio shapes ? If so it would be much appreciated for you to kindly guide me to it

Cheers

Try using some different chords like 6/9 chords, 9th chords, diminished chords, etc. It'll be good for you if you can work out your own shapes too!

Just a bit of advice...partly because I don't know any sites of which you speak.

you could look for method books for classical guitar. that'd help a lot.

All of the information presented is good to check out and all, but memorizing shapes is a bit useless after the basic shapes. A good thing to do is look at the way these shapes are built and where the chord tones are placed so you can raise and lower them at your discretion.

For example: Changing an Amaj7 to an Amaj7#5 arpeggio is as easy as this

[font="Courier New"]
E|----------------------------------4---5-|
B|------------------------------5---------|
G|--------------------------6-------------|
D|-----------------6---7------------------|
A|--------4---7---------------------------|
E|---5------------------------------------|       

Now in order the chords tones go {1,3,5,7} which repeats and ends on the 1. 
Now all we have to do is sharp the fifth in the arpeggio to achieve a maj7#5 
arpeggio.

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

If the strech to the 8th fret in the first part is too much just move it over to 
the 3rd fret of the D string.

You can apply that method to any arpeggio you want with an alteration in it, 
basing it off of the core arpeggios {maj7,min7,dominant7,diminished, and augmented}[/FONT]
