Hi, this is Hub Guitar.

Let's play some minor triad arpeggios.

Here's the root position F minor arpeggio. You may notice how similar it is to the minor pentatonic scale form.

Here's the first inversion F minor arpeggio.

And here's the second inversion.

So learn these minor arpeggio patterns, and find a way to apply them to your playing.


Below are arpeggios for minor triads, all inversions. Learn them all, and then learn to apply them all to your playing.
