Eruption by Van Halen. The tapping part is what I played and practiced to learn the technique.

Infact, Eddie played it as a warm up himself!

Also, maybe consider lowering your action.

It's good to develop the technique on a clean as sound as you can, that way when you add the distortion or overdrive your taps will be powerful and much cleaner!

Remember its not so much a "tap" as it a flick. Hit down on the note you're tapping and pull away like a pull off. As said the little tap section in eruption is a great linerar pattern to get the feel and rhythm of tapping down. Once you get that under you're belt you can take it as far as you want.
