EDBAG octaves : 7-string guitar in standard BEADGBE tuning
F major-dominant seventh arpeggio : General

In this BLOGoZON we take a look at the F major-dominant seventh arpeggio box shapes and join them all together to form one long EDBAG octaves chain for 7-string guitar in standard BEADGBE tuning.

The EDBAG octaves sequence is shown for F natural in the diagram that follows:-

The diagrams that follow show all of the F major-dominant seventh arpeggio notes plotted over the
7-string guitar's fretboard in the EDBAG octaves and GuitarPro6 styles:-

NOTE :- The F major-dominant seventh is an amalgamation of the F major seventh and F dominant seventh arpeggios; GuitarPro6 diagrams of both these arpeggios follow:-

GuitarPro6 F major seventh arpeggio

NOTE:- The GuitarPro6 fingerboard that follows for the F dominant seventh arpeggio shows E's enharmonic equivalent spelling of D (the augmented sixth interval name rather than the minor seventh) used elsewhere on this page.

As always a more long term solution to fretboard navigation is to see scales 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 F major-dominant seventh arpeggio are detailed below in the EDBAG octaves manner:-

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 - 6E4E1 - being repeated at the 12th fret).

The video shown to the right demonstrates the EDBAG octaves chain-linked sequence for the F major-dominant seventh arpeggio box shapes.
