GEDBA octaves : 8-string guitar in Drop E (EBEADGBE)
G major arpeggio (3nps) : General

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 G major arpeggio (3nps)
are detailed below in the GEDBA octaves manner:-
