and I just can't help but think... How do you construct 6/7 note arpeggios? I mean in a 3 note arpeggios you take the chords and play them 1 by 1...But how about 4/5/6/7 note arpeggios where will we get the notes to play? Is it in the scale?
Thanks in advance.

Technically, the notes that are available will be in the scale depending on what chords you are trying to arpeggiate. These notes are also available in the different modes.
Let’s try one more. How about a Gmaj 7 chord? The notes available to us are G/B/D/F#, these notes are also present in the G major scale. You can choose to arpeggiate 3 notes – G/B/F# or 4 notes – G/B/D/F#.
To arpeggiate more notes, you can get it from the scale, if you add A to the G major 7 arpeggio. You then now have a 5 notes arpeggio G/B/D/F#/A, which is a G major 9 chord. You can arrange your arpeggio in any order that you want.
