Miles Davis part 2
1/25/2012 11:13:44 AM
Look at John Coltrane, he was never one to settle on points A to B to C. He was all about the journey in between. That is what kept him fresh when he was relevent to now when he is still considered one of the best saxaphone players in jazz. Emulated and copied more times in popular music today than one could count. If you keep searching in your game you'll find wins and loses for many differnet reasons. The goal is to be ever changing for me. I'm not out to be the number 1 air hockey player in the world. I'm out to play and learn more about my opponent and myself.
There are players out there that take notes from their heavier opponents. This is a wonderful way to learn, change, and challenge yourself along with your opponent. I encourage a notepad of what is working and what is not against other players. It will give you an edge and something to look back on when you battle them the next time. Hell most smart phones have notepads in them. Just write down the name of someone giving you trouble and why. Then work on the defensive strategy that works against that shot that is making you suffer and come up with what worked against them offensively. Then change your timing, you'll see better results in your matches this way. It is tried tested and proven, but you have to do what works for you.
So finally timing, I know what music I march to and that makes me happy. Find what you love and love what you find in your air hockey game. It will surprise you what is out there. I hope to hear from you reader so if you have any questions or complaints for me please email me petesimple (at) yahoo (dot) com
