C-Major Scale with b5th added
C . D . E F Gb G . A . B
R . 9 . 3 4 b5 5 . 6 . 7

This is not your Dad's Major Scale! The addition of Gb
as a passing tone creates some really interesting melodic
as well as harmonic possibilities that extend from all of
its modes. You can spice up a plain old 2-5-1 progression
using the b5th as melodic coloration and as a harmonic
pivot to build and discharge tension within this motion.
If you're sharp using M.A.M.I. you'll easily spot a great
harmony based on Gb to C tritone interval: what is it?

The C Major Arpeggio is the basic root 4 note subset of the C Major (Ionian) Scale.  

 Given that the C Major Scale (actually Ionian Major scales of all roots) are a staple element of composition in Western Music practically since the beginning of time, this is indeed an important group of notes to become familiar with.

Melodic composition and improvisation using these notes can be rewarding yet limiting since there are so few notes from which to choose. There is only one leading (minor 2nd or half-step) interval to provide tension in a line. Used over the parent Ionian Major scale these notes can emphasize the "major resolution" and quality of the composition or provide varying levels of tension in combination with it's other notes.  

Playing the notes of the C Major 7 Arpeggio simultaneously in chord form causes this interval combination to provides a stable, solid, bright and joyous element upon which many harmonic lines (and tunes) eventually resolve.
