Watch the Dm Form online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from Guitar Lab: CAGED Modes

This lesson presents the Aeolian mode over the Dm form of the EDCAG system. Diagram 45 shows the Dm form arpeggio in red. The three notes that form this minor arpeggio are: 1, b3, 5. The formula for the Aeolian mode is: 1, 2, b3, 4, 5, b6, b7. If you view the arpeggio as a skeletal framework of the mode, you can then perceive the remaining four notes as color tones or chord extensions. These are presented in black. It is very important that you memorize the scale degrees and to aid you in this process you will learn to organize the tones in each position in terms of octaves.
