ARPEGGIOS

Now that you’ve learned your thirds, you can build arpeggios or chord shapes into your playing. You can build your arpeggios by combining your thirds and fifths together. Major chords/arpeggios follow the formula 1 3 5, and minor chords/arpeggios follow the formula 1 b3 5. The diagram below shows the major and minor shape arpeggios you need to know.
