Your contrast in tone from the slinky 70s funk of Rock Steady to the arena power of Times Like These was impressive. You demonstrated a wide range of sonic colours and stylistic versatility. To build upon this, aim to create a greater dynamic shape over the course of the song. You brought some original and creative ideas to both performances in terms of groove variations and fills. These were always stylistically in keeping with the genre and provided a balanced degree of flair without compromising any part of the arrangements of the songs. To take this to the next level, you should try to replicate Bernard Purdie's more syncopated bass drum pattern to Rock Steady, which locks in with the rhythm section parts beautifully and creates an extra dimension of funk to the groove.
