AGEDC octaves (EADGBE : 6-string guitar standard tuning)
A minor arpeggio: General

In this BLOGoZON we take a look at the A minor arpeggio box shapes and join them all together for
6-string guitar in standard EADGBE tuning to form one long AGEDC octaves chain.

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 A minor arpeggio are detailed below in the AGEDC octaves manner:-

The tables and tabbed panels below detail all five box shapes for the
A minor arpeggio in the AGEDC octaves style.

Once the individual box shapes have been assimilated all seven 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 arpeggio box shapes.
