comment Does the bass note in a “slash” chord really have an associated interval?
In the key of C this could be considered a simplification of G13♭9, a pretty common chord in jazz standards. It often appears after a Dm7, which takes a whole F triad and slides it down a semitone. A neat trick.

comment Equivalent Key Signatures
Yes, before equal temperament a work played in G# and any other key would sound different (different intervals between scale notes), but G# and Ab are identical keys on a keyboard, producing identical pitches. You are essentially arguing that, after playing a piece in G#, keyed instruments would be re-tuned before playing in Ab. Is there evidence that that was actually done?

@luserdroog, I'm slowly building a collection of my favorite songs re-pitched as close as possible to 440 using Audition (and a lot of patience). I haven't taken on Strawberry Fields yet.
