If you have D flat, and your trying to find the ninth of D flat how do you count up the scale?

D flat, E flat, F flat etc

or..

D flat, E, F, G, etc

i know the ninth is also the second..

but if you counted up E flat d flat etc then that makes noooo sense god i ****ing hate chords, in the chord B flat 13, the 13th (the sixth) would be g flat, but the note used as the 13th is g not g flat..

Bb13? Maybe that means a Bb chord built up from thirds until the 13?

If it was a B chord with a flattened 13, it would be built off of the B major scale, not the Bb scale.

I don't know how to tell the difference between which one it is when just reading the chord. This chord has confused me before too. I guess it's about the notes in the chord.

The 6th in Eb is C (or something enharmonic, I don't feel like thinking hard right now).
