The arpeggio menu has been completed by a new page. It's about the Half diminished arpeggio also called m7b5 arpeggios. These arpeggios are played over m7b5 chords but also well used over dominant 7th chords (starting on the major third) and minor seventh chords (starting on the sixth / thirteenth).

They are made up of four notes :

  • Root 
  • minor third (b3)
  • diminished fifth (b5)
  • minor seventh (b7)

Let's take a look at the example below about the Bm7b5 chord (B minor 7 flat 5).
