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 scale 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
