Lets say we have the C major arpeggios it would be fingered starting on the A string as follows

12 - 15
13
12
14
15


My question is if I take the same shape and move it to down a fret I will have the B major arpeggio and if I move it down again I will have the A# major arpeggio is this correct?

Also does the same apply for the Minor arpeggios?

however, only up and down the fretboard, the shape changes on different strings.

You can move this shape up and down the nect too. It is a min7b5 shape.

No it's not. It's 1 b3 b5, implying full diminished. Not half diminished.

Apologies. At least its given him 3 shapes to work with now. One of my practise exercises is harmonizing a major scale using sweeps, and I always think 'right, the VII chord is min7b5 so I can sweep this arp over it'. But yeah, the argeggio is just missing out the seventh degree.
