Minor 7 Arpeggios On The Guitar

The minor 7 arpeggio contains the following:

1 – b3 – 5 – b7

It can be thought of as a minor arpeggio, with an added b7. It is a very important tool for any guitarist because it can be used very effectively with a range of minor scales, such as the dorian scale, aeolian scale and minor pentatonic scale.

As with any arpeggio or scale, we want to master 5 movable shapes. Let’s look at the 5 movable minor 7 arpeggio shapes, using Cmin7 as the example arpeggio:
