That's a grace note - it's a very short little lead-in to the main note, makes a little trilling sound. Anyone else with better language?

I can barely wrap my head around it because I watched some videos on Irish rolled notes... but I'd love to hear more explanations from the "pros" here.  I know I can't learn my "The Kiss " piece until I learn to do it .  :)

hi Ozmous:

there is( Appoggiatura)

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wi.....iatura.png

The first half of the principal note's duration has the pitch of the grace note (the first two-thirds if the principal note is a dotted note).

and there is ( Acciaccatura)

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wi.....catura.png

The acciaccatura is of very brief duration, as though brushed on the way to the principal note, which receives virtually all of its notated duration. In percussion notation, the acciaccatura symbol is used to denote the flam rudiment, the miniature note still being positioned behind the main note but on the same line or space of the staff. The flam note is usually played just before the natural durational subdivision the main note is played on, with the timing and duration of the main note remaining unchanged.

and what in the pic you post is Acciaccatura.

and you can watch this:

Lol in other words moony-2173 to those silly music writers who don't realise some of us are getting on a bit and can only read PROPER sized notes if our noses are no more the 2 inches away from the sheet music.
Ie usually a lot closer than when supported on a music stand!!

I was born with nothing,
and to my surprise I still have most of it left!
