comment Is Emajor the dominant chord in A minor?
@Mr.Boy that's more or less correct, but in minor keys the more tasty sounding melodic minor or harmonic minor is often the scale you should build those chords off, rather than the somewhat "bland" natural minor

comment Is Emajor the dominant chord in A minor?
In jazz, "the" dominant chord would be the fifth scale degree V7, e.g. in either keys A or A- it would be E7 (or some other "dominant" colouration, often a b9 or #9). BobRodes is also correct that any chord with a major 3rd and minor 7th would also be called "a" dominant chord by jazz guys. Calling E- a dominant chord here would almost always be misleading or just plain wrong. Melodic minor is much more common than natural minor in jazz. I can't speak for classical music.

Personally I would say the dominant chord. E7 is usual.

comment Do all jazz musicians [in a band] need to know a song's melody?
No they don't. But neither is it pointless.

comment Should my first bass guitar be expensive?
You don't know what you like in an instrument until you can play reasonably well, so just get a cheap instrument first up. Your tastes will probably change over time anyway

comment Why does the dominant chord contain a flattened 7th?
It is irrelevant that the C major scale doesn't contain Bb, because the dominant (V7) in this case would be a G7 chord, with the m7 being the F note.

comment Where is a natural harmonic for the note C on guitar?
I have found it can be sharpened with a bit of a bend in the neck or a push on the string behind the bridge, like in the other answer here.

comment Where is a natural harmonic for the note C on guitar?
Nice idea! I have jazz manouche guitar, so it's even easier to bend the string (I can push behind the bridge)

comment Some acoustic guitars are easy to play but some aren't. What affects playability?
I don't agree "the aim of a setup is necessarily to calibrate many parts of the guitar to lower the action to the lowest possible degree" - some players prefer a high action. E.g., hard hitters who play at loud volumes without amps. And some guitars suffer intonation problems if the action is too low.

I suppose I would also find an F natural at the same position on the G string ..

comment Where is a natural harmonic for the note C on guitar?
It's not "getting in the way", I just want to be aware of all the possibilities available to me on the instrument, and the arrangement of higher pitched natural harmonics are not completely obvious to me so I thought it's possible I may have overlooked a few possibilities.
