Edit: Having looked it up on Google, it appears it started as a convention on string instruments. Still, I've never seen 'em before: "A frequent misconception is that grace notes and ghost notes are synonymous. A grace note is by definition decidedly shorter in length than the principal note which it 'graces', but in many examples the grace note receives a greater degree of accentuation (emphasis) than the principal itself, even though it is a much shorter note than the principal. In other words, while a grace note could be ghosted, the ghosting of notes is a function of volume rather than of duration."

If I believed you for one second, I'd pay the big bucks for one tomorrow. Then I'd go on all the late night TV shows with my combo, maybe collect a Grammy or two, and retire to a tropical island... (Kingtrumpet let me borrow one of his little kickers)
So there you go...
