I remember on a video I watched earlier, doing tapping on guitar, have to press the fret, then flick slightly downwards,
but after watching an Angel Vivaldi song, I'm starting to wonder whether there's another technique to doing it,
because the taps I do tend to fade away really quickly...

any advice?

Learn from the very best mate. A younger Guthrie Govan here, and the first 120 secs of this vid should be enough to get you going...
