Hey guys, a little theory problem:
I have a cool original song, and the notes of the scale are D,E,F,G,A,Bb,C, and D. I think it's d minor, but when i'm soloing over it, one of the arpeggios i normally use for d minor doesn't work. so my question is, for further use, is this arpeggio in the key of D minor? (i found another one that does work, i just wanted to know what key this one was in)

e-------15-19-15----------
b----17------------17-------
g-16-------------------16---
d-------------------------
a-------------------------
e-------------------------

Thanks for the help!

The song's in D minor, but that arpeggio's off- it sounds wrong because the bottom two notes (16's) and top note (19) are both B, hence that will give you a #6 and sound wrong in a pure D minor context.

This would be a Dm arpeggio in the position you posted if you would like to play it there:


e-------15-----------------
B----16----16--------------
G-17----------17-----------
D----------------17--------
A-------------------18p15--
E--------------------------


You could also make this a Dm7 arpeggio by adding a C note to it, which would probably make it a lot easier to play in that position.
