Continuing to explore some arpeggios that have some raised or lowered 5th, here’s one in minor that sounds really cool.  Technically, it’s a minor triad with a minor 6th.  That minor 6th (in the key of A, that’s an F) is enharmonic with an augmented 5th-- meaning, it’s the same note, called by a different name.  What you hear is an arpeggio with more than a plain triad, it has a note that we intentionally chose because of it’s particular sound.  

Here’s the tab:
And here's a neck diagram:
The other cool thing about this particular form (root on the 6th string) is that it let’s you practice with the symmetry across the fretboard.  The pattern repeats, with some slight variation at the 2nd and 3rd string, where the interval between strings is a 3rd instead of a 4th.  

Let me know if you have any questions!
