This is nice. I 've started writing out the scale sequence in a lot of my practice book examples and it helps a lot.

But tell me why we have 9, 11, and 13 instead of 2, 4 and 6?
I could understand if we jumped into the next higher octave, but it's in the same range as the Root.
Is it an option on the 'decoder'?
Forces one to think more like a soloist?

It was just convention, there isn't usually a distinction about the octave, so the 2nd/9 is usually called the "9" same with all the others, 11=4, 13=6. If all the notes are put into a chord like:

C E G B D F A
R 3 5 7 9 11 13

Then the d note is the 9ths of the chord, so no matter what octave it is in, it gets referred to by that. But you are totally right, same as the 2.
