Angry So annoyed with Down Down

I'm on my last 100% Break It Down song and Teach Me How to Jerk has me enraged. When I did it on Break It Down on Hard on another save, I had no problem. Now I'm on easy, and the Down Down move to the right just will not work for me. I am doing the same thing every time and sometimes it says Flawless and other times I'm in the red... but I'm not changing what I'm doing!!

Help! I am going nuts here. Nothing is more frustrating and aggravating than not knowing what I am doing "wrong" since my "wrong" is also apparently "Flawless".

Any tips for this move?
To the left I'm ok.... and the Knee Down Down part is fine... it's ONLY the Down Down to the right that just won't count me consistently.

I also find this frustrating... I'm doing the move exactly as requested, and my arms will go red.... when I'm not supposed to be doing anything with them anyways.... Then on other moves, I know I'm not moving my arms right and it says flawless!

Anyways, something I've been trying, which seems to work more times than not, is to bend your knees a bit and try to 'get into it' a little more... almost like over acting. It might not be your arms at all....

Good Luck!

I'll take a look when I get home and see if I can find anything that might help.

By the way, that should read "The Knee Down Down part is fine".

YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!!

The solution was: BARELY DO THE DANCE MOVE.

Seriously..... I was "doing it too much". I just barely stood there and did the dance move sloppy and it counts every time.

At least I'm done with that stupid-ass Something to Prove achievement.

I finally am able to do this move and i found out you must be very exact for it to work.
My advice is once you slap and go down you must move your arms back toward your left shoulder then move your knee out then arms in knee in and repeat.
Just moving your knee around will never work it must be in rhythm

I was also stuck on this, but I wasn't REALLY looking at the move.

All of what Shadowtrooper said is bang on, but also I noticed (or rather, my girlfriend did while watching me go for this one) is that on the first Down Down (to the right), you have both arms up in front of your chest while doing it. I had this down.

When you repeat this move to the left, you ONLY HAVE YOUR LEFT ARM UP, leave your right arm down by your side. Watch the move carefully, you will see what I'm talking about.

This is what kept me for quite a while from unlocking this achievement. I had never noticed the variation when you change direction, until my girlfriend pointed out that I was in fact doing the move incorrectly.

The problem I had was "Down Down" (which goes to the right) and unfortunately, although others have reported to do the move more exact or more exaggerated, the way it worked for me to was not actually do the move and just kind of flop around.

Your mile may vary, apparently!!

I figured out what I was doing wrong with this move, and maybe some of you are having the same issue: standing up straight at the end is part of the move. After the last twist, stand up straight when the dancer does, or even before.

You're so pathetic. Stop being such a troll and posting lies on every forum you go to.

That's what really makes me laugh. He sends me messages about achievements being unobtainable, yet I have them all. He sucks.
