Gracenotes are like little embellishments or ornaments in music. They are extra, quick, and brief notes that appear just before the main notes of a melody or a musical phrase. Gracenotes are often used to add flavour, expression, and character to the music, making it more interesting and colourful.
Gracenotes are commonly found in various musical styles, including classical, folk, and traditional music. They are frequently used in string instruments like the violin or guitar, where players skilfully incorporate these ornamentations to enhance the melody and create a more emotionally expressive performance.
