It's called Frustration
I recently got a chance to present some of my music at a student recital
At a student recital you expect various levels of competence.
So we were not surprised when this young fellow took the stage.
He was completely unprepared for his song.
He fumbled around a bit carefully arranging his mike and the music stand.
Even though he didn't seem to have brought any music
Then he pulled a wrinkled wad of paper from his pocket, unfolded it and placed it on the stand
He began his song
During which mumbled performance he occasionally had to stop to read from his score
or peer down to arrange his fingers on the neck of his guitar.
Not a dynamic performance.
After the smattering of polite applause waned, my wife turned to me and said
"In two hundred years, that piece of paper will be worth a fortune"
