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 arpeggio are detailed below for the
7-string guitar in the CAGED octaves manner:-

The table and tabbed panel below details all five box shapes for the A minor arpeggio for the 7-string guitar in the CAGED octaves style.
