I had a really hard time with this. Try learning the rhythm beforehand, that helped me a lot.

you know you just have to follow ONE of the guys. your choice. I failed 1-2 times and then managed a passing grade.

learn the melody, know the pattern of the zig zag so you don't have to REACT but just activate the movement pattern you prepared.

God damnit I hated this minigame! It was really hard to know how exactly you messed up and what you were doing wrong. I barely finished it once, earning myself a "that was ok I guess" reaction, so I then spent maybe an hour trying to get the best possible result. I eventually got it on a turn where I decided to try to make 2 clicking sounds between every swing in an attempt to keep rhythm, much to my own surprise since what I did didn't seem that different from when I completely failed the challenge.

The controls, the lack of feedback besides "you messed up so the music died out" and the shit you have to button through everytime you fail and want to try again made this the worst part of the entire game for me.
