    That's why I said 'sorta'-it certainly shares more with dominants than with tonic, subdominant or mediant chords.

    And in minor III can serve as a sub for V.

    Dominant... sorta.

    Dominants can have augmented fifths.
    Also, in melodic or harmonic minor one can build an augmented III chord that resolves nicely to the tonic.

    Ex: C+ to Am

    Pretty much my approach

    I tend to sweep all my arpeggios, alt picking only the parts that I don't want hammered/pulled in that phrase, though I like the sound hammer/pull better in most cases.
