E major arpeggio box shapes

EDCAG octaves logo

This issue demonstrates the E MAJOR ARPEGGIO box shapes.

The EDCAG octaves sequence is shown for E natural in the diagram that follows:-

The diagram that follows shows all of the E major arpeggio notes plotted over the 6-string guitar's fretboard in both the Guitar Pro and EDCAG octaves styles:-

EDCAG octaves E major arpeggio notes

As always a more long term solution to fretboard navigation is to see scales/arpeggios as INTERVAL shapes rather than note names - as these are universal to all scales, arpeggios and chords rather than specific to one particular root note - with this in mind the intervals for the E major arpeggio are detailed below in the EDCAG octaves manner:-

The table and tabbed panel below details all five box shapes for the E major arpeggio in the
EDCAG octaves style.

An additional box shape is detailed for the E major arpeggio - as the pattern that is played at fret twelve falls off the edge of the fingerboard - hence the modified fingering shown below in the tabbed panel. To the right is the box shape complete with gaps.
