Watch the D minor 7th Arpeggio online guitar lesson by Robbie Calvo from Sweet Notes

Let's learn and play a Dm 7 arpeggio in 5th position. As we play through the arpeggio shape, name the notes D - F - A - C. We now have four chord tones to use as resolutions instead of the three we found in the A minor pentatonic. We can still use the A minor pentatonic scale shape but we can add in the F tone from the chord arpeggio too. This will really define the chord and the value of this can be realized fully when a solo begins and there isn't an instrument playing chords underneath the solo. Lick 2: A Dm 7 arpeggio lick resolving to the D (root). Play this lick again and resolve to the F. (b3)
