comment What chord is this and when is it the dominant?
Oh I'm with you. I find it kind of dirty to notate the descending line of My Funny Valentine (C, B, Bb, A) in the chords. It's not really the harmonic function, as you say. I was just reacting to your "isn't a real chord", because if a composer really want a minor chord on I with a sixth, what else could they write?

@jjmusicnotes: I am not sure what you mean. Surely you can have a m6, for example on the root? My Funny Valentine: Cm - Cmmaj7 - Cm7 - Cm6.

comment What is the most common way to notate dominant chords with a sharp fifth?
Nice answer. In the D+11 case, you could also put the 11 in superscript, to avoid the +11 confusion.

revised What are some common jazz chord progressions?
#13 is enharmonic to 7, I'm sure you meant b13

comment Which instrument can a person play with 2 malformed fingers on each hand?
Trombone is best, but 3-valve instrument is doable I think. Especially light valves, such as the trumpet. People with such disabilities gain much better control over the fingers they have left than people without.

comment Note naming convention while creating scales
Why? I don't know. But it happens: see wikipedia's C-sharp major page (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C-sharp_major). As for G# major (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G-sharp_major): "The final pages of A World Requiem by John Foulds are written in G-sharp major with its correct key signature shown in the vocal score including the Fdouble sharp."

comment What do you call a Major chord with a natural 4?
Good comment about having the 11th below the 3rd. Sus chords are sometimes voiced to include the 3rd, but in that case higher than the 11th, for the reason you named (b9). Depending on context, I guess your chord example could be a Sus. But I know of no standard symbol for including the third in a Sus cord.

comment What does an “L” shape mean beside a note in the lower staff?
The left hand stretch is no comfortable. Which is why the bracket is :) (time sig: 12/8).
