This issue demonstrates the MINOR-DIMINISHED ARPEGGIO which is the underlying arpeggio for the
MINOR BLUES SCALE (built from the minor pentatonic scale plus the flat five - 5 - or BLUES NOTE).

The AGEDC octaves sequence is shown for A natural in the diagram that follows:-

The diagram that follows show all of the A minor-diminished arpeggio notes plotted over the 6-string guitar's fretboard in the AGEDC octaves style:-

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 A minor-diminished arpeggio are detailed below for the 6-string guitar in the AGEDC octaves manner:-

The table and tabbed panel below details all five box shapes for the A minor-diminished arpeggio for the

Once the individual box shapes have been assimilated all five shapes should be linked together and played in one continuous exercise (with the first shape - 5Am3 - being repeated at the 12th fret).

The video shown to the right demonstrates the AGEDC octaves chain-linked sequence for the A minor-diminished arpeggio box shapes.
