It is important to take note of the fact that sounds can co-exist and be mixed together.
As I mention and demonstrate here, the major 6th and 9th intervals can be added to a D minor and combined with a basic minor 7th arpeggio.
Technical skill, muscle memory and ear training all happen at the same time as you connect the patterns.
Hopefully some of my ideas can serve as a starting point and catalyst for your own variations.
