I will clarify the intention of that comment. Intervals are numbered by how many notes they span in name. C to F spans 4 letters (ascending – C D E F). F to C spans 5 letters (ascending – F G A B C). If you are playing a C chord, F is the perfect fourth of C. If you are playing an F chord, C is the perfect fifth of F. My comments were in reference to chord formulas. Intervals have direction in that ascending a perfect fifth from C is a G, but descending a perfect fifth from C is an F. However ascending from C to F is still a perfect fourth. Chord formulas assume an ascending interval. So when you play a C chord, the F is considered the fourth.

If you move from a higher string to an adjacent lower string, the interval descends by a perfect fifth.” if you could help me understand how it is perfect 4 and perfect 5, it would be really helpful, this is the best of what I wanted to know from all the things I have been reading all this while.

You have explained that in a very simple and positive way that I can understand and teach others. Thanks you so much.

The Secrets of Learning the Fretboard is an e-Book, which is available to people all over the world. I plan to print copies in 2017, though that will probably be late Summer.
