All my attempts against this four pronged evil menace from space have been met with failure on the score of 8-15. The above is, in a way, one of my best shots against the boss; after my absent-minded first moments, I try and pick up the slack, but eventually I always react that tenth of second too late and plonk, I'm closer to failure.
I'm afraid there's not much advice you can give me except "stop sucking," but...
How can I move the paddle in pong... better?
Addendum. While reading the TvTropes page about Bit.Trip*, I read this:
Ascended Glitch: In BEAT, hitting the pong ball with the corners of Player 2's paddle will cause the ball to gain way too much momentum and go haywire, making the final boss trivial to beat. When the game was patched, Gaijin specifically didn't fix the bug because it was a "cool advanced technique".
I haven't been able to reproduce this. Is this behaviour present in the PC version?
