7th Arpeggios

There are 3 types of 7th Arpeggios:

  1. Major 7th
  2. Minor7th
  3. 7th

 

We describe their Formation and theory below.

Major 7th:

Add major scale’s 7th note with the corresponding Major arpeggio or chord.

Example:

CM7th=C E G+B

In case of C major 7th, the main 3 notes of the arpeggio are C,E,G as we learnt from previous chapters. The arpeggio notes C,E,G are found from its corresponding scale C Major. So now we have to add the 7th note from C major scale which is B with the existing Arpeggio of C major.

Task 1:Play C Maj7th On a metronome. Tempo 120(4/4 -2 notes in each beat)
Task 2: Find out D Maj7th,E Maj7th,F Maj7th,G Maj7th using the same rule and play as Task-1

minor 7th:

Add minor scale’s 7th note with the corresponding minor arpeggio or chord.

Example:

Cm7th=C D# G+A#

In case of C minor 7th,the main 3 notes of the arpeggio are C,D#,G as we learnt from previous chapters. The arpeggio notes C,D#,G are found from its corresponding scale C minor. So now we have to add the 7th note from C minor scale which is A# with the existing Arpeggio of C minor.

Task 1:Play C min7th On a metronome. Tempo 120(4/4 -2 notes in each beat)
Task 2: Find out D min7th,E min7th,F min7th,G min7th using the same rule and play as Task-1

7th (Dominant):

Add minor scale’s 7th note with the corresponding major arpeggio or chord.

Or Add Flattened 7th note from Natural major scale with the corresponding Major Arpeggio or chord.

Also it might be called as Dominant 7th.

Example:

C7th=C E G+ A#

In case of C7th,the main 3 notes of the arpeggio are C,E,G as we learnt from previous chapters. The arpeggio notes C,E,G are found from its corresponding scale C major. So now we have to add the 7th note from C minor scale which is A# with the existing Arpeggio of C Major.

Also using the flattened 7th note of the Major scale is the same aspect of constructing the 7th arpeggio.

Task 1:Play C7th On a metronome. Tempo 120(4/4 -2 notes in each beat)
Task 2: Find out D7th,E7th,F7th,G7th using the same rule and play as Task-1
