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).

comment Can a chord contain both the C and C♯ notes? (as opposed to containing C and D♭ notes)
Agreed. And having a Db instead of a C# in a A7 variant of chord feels... urk. This is what I meant with limitations of the system. You can see A7+9 as a chord with the third, the seventh, a minor ninth, and an augmented ninth, then come up with one spelling. Or you can see it as a set of tones from Bb minor melodic and come to another spelling. There are several ways to look at it, and they are not very consistent. It is even worse when you start using things such as diminished scales (on A7b9. Too many tones!) or whole tone scales (too few!).

@ReinHenrichs: correct. There is something to this answer though: you can voice A7+9 with both the b9 and the #9. There you have A, Bb, B#/C, C#. I would prefer to spell it A - C# - G - Bb - C, thus having both C and C#. This is really a sign of the limitations of our notation system, in my opinion.

comment Can all notes be produced using only the trumpet's valves?
@Mark: there may be a big difference between the trumpet and tuba, the frequency ranges being so different. Here is a relevant discussion about buzzing at the Trumpet Herald: trumpetherald.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=104100
