Bob Ferry discusses how chords are heard from the bottom up and how the ear hears all the notes of a scale, arpeggio, or chord relative to the root note. Bob utilizes the Superimposition of Fingerings For Guitar to demonstrate an example based on A7 in the key of D: the 1st-6th A7 arpeggio as the Mixolydian V chord with the 1st-5th D Major Scale.
