How to Build m11 Arpeggios

In today’s music theory lesson, we’ll be looking at two ways that you can use to build m11 Arpeggios, one from a m9 arpeggio with one added note, and one taken from a two-octave Aeolian Mode.

If you need a refresher on either of these items, check out the How to Build m9 Arpeggios and Sounds of the Aeolian Mode lessons on the GMC Forum.

The first method that we’ll look at to build m11 arpeggios take the m9th arpeggio, Root-b3-5-b7-9, and simply adds on one more note, the 11th, R-b3-5-b7-9.

Here is how that looks like on paper using a Cm9 to build a Cm11 arpeggio.

The second way that you can use to build a m11 Arpeggio is to take the 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th and 11th notes of a two-octave Aeolian Mode, otherwise known as the Natural Minor Scale, as these are the 6 notes you need to build this arpeggio.

Here is how that formula looks like on paper using a C Aeolian Mode to build a Cm11 Arpeggio.

Test Your Theory Knowledge!

Now that you have learned how to build Minor 11th Arpeggios, try writing out a number of them in the comments section below to get some practice with these shapes.

If you write out some, or all, of the different m11th Arpeggios I’ll be happy to look over your work and make sure you’re on the right track.
