Here is the beat map for the whole first-line type. Tap it before you play it!
Here's the Line Three phrase pattern. Repeat over and over - it's the basic off-the-beat rhythm.
Now play a hands-crossed version 'loco' - in position, using the same keys but hands crossed.

Work out what the three tapping patterns will be - Line One, Phrase One; Line One, Phrase Two; and Line Three phrases.
Here are two acrobatic challenges. The left hand is going to play both below and above the right hand melody, in two patterns.
The way to make is easy is:
You can drop the 'staggered interval' trick initially, if you like.
Here's the second option.
Remember: Learning something is usually a case of "taking the effort out of trying" to do it!
