comment Notation and construction of 13th chords
I'd probably play C,E,G,Bb and A in some order. Like I stated , often, all 7 notes are not played, anyway. To my simple mind, the 13th comes from a 7th(b) and a 6th. As in 6+7=13.

Oh no you don't. Sorry.Pretend we're in C for now. Moving to the F chord may call for a C13. Yes, it's a dominant sort of chord, but no-one can say, truthfully, that the only dominant chord in a piece will have to be the one made off the V, as in G13.

@TimHargreaves - first past the post doesn't make it the best answer you're going to get.

So - F13 would be... Except we need to consider one key/scale and one chord name.Give us a concrete example, please, as in C13, made up from the notes of Cmaj ?

So, just to clarify, as you seem to be confused and confusing, C13 would have - C-D-E-F-G-A-B- notes in it. Is that what you're stating? If yes, it's totally invalid.

@Basstickler - personally, I've never used all the notes - on guitar ! Couldn't, and wouldn't. Mostly, I put a b7 and a maj6 on the triad, and it works for me. No-one has ever complained about it !

It's way too soon to vote a 'favourite' answer. This debate may run...

comment Notation and construction of 13th chords
That's probably why I said 'strictly'. It rarely does.There are as many ways of voicing a chord as skinning a cat. That's subjective. I tried to point out that a min6th chord doesn't have a m6 note in it.

I'm thinking that because there is a b7 involved, and no major scale possesses a b7.

comment Notation and construction of 13th chords
It's actually all the notes from the major scale made off the sub-dominant of the scale in question.It's difficult to discuss without having a datum point.

Read again.There is no minor seventh interval off the root note. I'll debate till the cows come home, but my oppo. needs to be well informed !

The 7th is flat, so not in the major scale.What notes would you suggest removing? The OP didn't mention a specific instrument.I believe I did just prove you wrong !

comment Characteristics of single-coil (Telecaster) sound
I wonder if that's the reason why, when playing harmonics, they are easier to sound when you pluck very close to the bridge

comment 5string bass for blues\jazz?
Is this question slanted more to 'Should I get an Ibanez', or 'Should I get a 5-string bass' ?

comment 5string bass for blues\jazz?
String spacing - with 5-string basses, the choice is keep the 4 string width neck, and fit 5 strings, or - keep the 4 string spacing, and have a wider neck. Any 5 string will be better for jazz as you not only have a lower sounding (usually) string, between open and 5th fret, but the facility to play under normal E string wherever you are on the neck. 6-string will give the facility to play partial chords (on top G and C), much to the chagrin of guitarists.

comment Where can I go to play an acoustic piano regularly?
There are some quite small studio pianos available, a ship's piano is one that comes to mind, soundboard same height as the keys.With 88 notes, all are going to be as wide as each other though.
