How many key notes can a song have? Key changes

And in chord notation;

2 is 9
4 is 11
6 is 13

I can't find any lessons how to write those number in chord naming
How do I know if I should write is like this .. C7 (add6) or C7 (add13)
??
Thanks

i'd say it's up to 12, it mostly depends on your ability to include all of it into a song and not making it sound horrible

I think you always write 9/11/13 when it comes to chords. Technically, 9th states that the 2nd is octave higher than the main triad, but i haven't really seen any1 using 2/4/6 in chords and my chord construction book also mentiones only 9/11/13.


edit: also don't double-post (; there's edit button at every post you made

A song can have as many key changes as you want, there are no rules in music at all.


As for the chord naming conventions:

You use the lower names when you're using suspensions (sus2, sus4) and the higher one when it's an extension (9, add9 and so on). I've never seen a sus6 chord though, I think since it's a note that's higher than the 5th it's never a suspension so it'll always be either add13 or 13.
