ok guys so i'm sort of stumped on fguring out a music theory thing. SO when it comes to figuring out the arpeggios diatonicly in a scale i'm stuck on the e phrygian major one, i tried to figure it out to get my brain back on track on thinking about music theory again, but i'm stuck on the G#one, i came up with the first 2 wich the arpeggios would be Emaj and then F maj then The G# i THINK it might be diminished or somethign??? that's where i'm confused, also the fingering for the diminished arpeggio that's where i'm confused again, is there like a place where it shows me the fingering for the diminished sweep? like apart from just the 1 that i already know? as in is there different sweep picking inversions of the diminished? ok hopefully someone gets the question haha i'm terrible at wording things! thanks guys.

Hey

To answer your question I'll address the order of arpeggios in a major key so you can get those under your fingers as that might fix all your confusion the quickest.


In any major scale, or key, the order of arpeggios is:


maj7 - m7 - m7 - maj7 - 7 - m7 - m7b5


So for the key of E, like you mentioned, the arpeggios would be:


Emaj7 - F#m7 - G#m7 - Amaj7 - B7 - C#m7 - D#m7b5


The m7b5 arpeggio is also referred to as the "half-diminished" arpeggio, but there is no diminished arpeggio in the major arpeggios.


Here's some more info on the m7b5 arpeggio to check out, hope this helps!

yeah that's the right chart for triads, three-note chords, with no 7ths. So the order for that is:

Maj min min Maj Maj min dim

That's all. Check this page out for more info on Diminished triads.
