“foot-tapping should be the steady pulse marker and other more complex and/or varying structures would be accentuated by other means.”
Can you be more specific on how you would approach this?
Start practicing tapping your foot at the beginning of every quarter-note duration throughout. So if you are into the 12312312 structure after the intro part, your foot taps will coincide with the first 1 and the second 2, i.e. 1
312. So always twice for each 2/4 measure, evenly spaced.
The 12312312 you can accent the way you want (the ones, for example) through stroke accents with your right hand - just in the manner you execute the strokes.
Combining these will at first be awkward, even without the 12312312 accents but just from playing what the melody structure does against the even foot taps; but after a while you will start perceiving both at the same time as if layers of of different textures which combine into wonderful aural shapes.
