In this BLOGoZON we take a look at the C major-minor arpeggio box shapes and join them all together for
7-string guitar in standard tuning to form one long BAGED 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 C major-minor arpeggio are detailed below in the
BAGED 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 - 7B5B2 - being repeated at the 12th fret).

The video shown to the right demonstrates the BAGED octaves chain-linked sequence for the C major-minor arpeggio box shapes.
