The Root of All Evil by Dream Theater has a two handed tapping part.

Only looking at music as math and theory, is like only looking at the love of your life as flesh and bone.

Swinging to the rhythm of the New World Order,
Counting bodies like sheep to the rhythm of the war drums
single hand tap? u mean hammer ons?
<Raven> I got so baked last night
<Raven> that I WOKE UP high o_o
<Raven> Do you have any idea how euphoric that is?
<Raven> I felt like I was being born.
You really want to look at the standard Van Halen technique at first;

(Tap at twelfth fret)

after that, you could move onto tapping across multiple strings.
I second that "The Root Of All Evil" suggestion. The tapping part in that song is actually a pretty good exercise!

I didn't think they had metal in the 1790's

Ah, touche.
Just kind of put your index finger of your pick hand on, let's say, the 14th fret of the third highest string. Put your other index finger on the 7th fret. Now tap the 14th fret and sort of pick with it by pushing it down and release it in sort of a bend note. Now you'll hear the 7th fret. Immediately tap the 10th fret with your non-pick hand's 2nd or 3rd finger. Do that at like 170 qnpm and you have the two-hand-tapped intro to "Lip Gloss and Black" by Atreyu.
Also keep in mind that you can do this two different ways.

The way I see a lot of people do it is to hammer the tapping finger on the note, then flick it off downward. The way I do it - since Paul Gilbert and Buckethead do it this way - is to do a pull off motion instead.
